This contribution serves as an introductory exposition of the constitutional position of the oath in South Africa, and is chiefly based on the LLM dissertation of the author (Van der Schyff (2001 RAU) 127-129).

The contribution contends that the right to swear an oath exists as an inherent element of the right to freedom of religion as guaranteed under section 15(1) of the constitution of 1996.
