The Politics of Religion in an Age of Revival: Studies in Nineteenth-Century Europe & Latin America

Liberal Tide



Austen Ivereigh. Published 2000.



Detailed Description

The nineteenth century saw a lengthy and unusually intense conflict between religion and national politics over public space. Using case-studies of nations in both Europe and Latin America, the contirbutors to this unusual comparative volume explore the nature, background and consequences of this conflict from a revisionist and empirical viewpoint, incorporating the latest research and recasting the debate in the light of recent discussions about modernity. A substantial introduction sketches the vital issues and the major conclusions, and takes stock of the debate and where it is leading.
