The French Revolution dealt a fatal blow to the alliance of Church and State. The Christian church had to adapt to great changes - from the social upheavals of the Industrial Revolution to the philosophical speculations of Kant's 'Copernican revolution', to Darwin's evolutionary theories. Some Christians were driven to panic and blind reaction, others were inspired to re-interpret their faith; the results of this conflict within the fabric of the Church are still reverberating today. In this masterly appraisal of a doubt-ridden and turbulent period in Christianity Alec Vidler concludes with a discussion of the position of the Church in modern times and expertly answers the question: 'Has the Church stood up to the Age of Revolution?'… (més)

I've been putting off reading this volume of the PHC, because I'd convinced myself that it wouldn't be interesting. That was particularly silly, because 'the' church at this period is fascinating, and Vidler does a wonderful job of writing about it clearly. There are definite problems--there's far too much here about the churches in Britain, which didn't contribute anywhere near as much as those on the continent; and there's almost nothing about the U.S. or the Eastern churches. But Vidler does balance social movements, theology, and the ties between churches and states very well. He tells the story, in the main, as one about the ways that Christians responded to, promoted, or rejected modernity, whether that be anti-enlightenment thought (e.g., Kierkegaard), scientific advances (most obviously, Darwin in the U.K.), or modernism as a whole (the pre-Vatican II popes).

One problem is the book's age; there's little on Vatican II, or liberation theology. But I hope that they find a home in the more recent 'Christian Church in the Cold War.'

As I said, Vidler writes very well, and if you have any interest in world history after the French Revolution--even if you don't much care about religion--I can recommend this one. ( )

Most works overlook the Church so this little volume is helpful to fill in gaps in the record. For example, a handy chapter is Liberal Catholicism and Ultramontanism in France which provides background for understanding post-Napoleonic 19th Century revolts and revolutions. Ultramontanism is a religious philosophy within the Catholic Church that places strong emphasis on the prerogatives and powers of the Pope. In particular, ultramontanism may consist in asserting the superiority of Papal authority over the authority of local temporal or spiritual hierarchies (including the local bishop). Ultimately, liberal Catholics and the Ultramontanists disagreed over the French government's supervision over religious secondary schools.
