Recent research on political Catholicism in Europe has theorized the ways in which Catholic politics have navigated in a post-secular political environment. Many of these studies have articulated the complex nature of Catholicism’s transformation in late modernity. Rather than disappearing from the political landscape, as previous research had assumed, this transformation has opened up unexpected avenues for the Church’s continuing influence on political practices and ideas. This panel seeks to take stock of these trends and to theorize the contemporary dynamics of Catholicism and European Politics.
Co-sponsored by the CUSHWA Center for the Study of American Catholicism, the European University Institute (EUI) and John Cabot University.
The workshop will be hosted online through Zoom.
