"Raponi's monograph improves our understanding of the British enthusiasm for the Risorgimento by exploring how religion and politics fused together when Italian affairs were on the agenda. ... Raponi has consulted a very impressive range of sources. ... The book is beautifully written, Raponi's style being lively and engaging." (Owain Wright, Journal of Religious History Literature and Culture Reviews, June, 2016)
