Constitutionalism, doctrine that a government’s authority is determined by a body of laws or constitution. Although constitutionalism is sometimes regarded as a synonym for limited government, that is only one interpretation and by no means the most prominent one historically. More generally.

How are power and responsibility distributed, shared, and limited in the government established by the U.S. Constitution? How has the interpretation of the Bill of Rights evolved over time?
