The Roman Catholic Church's critical stance towards liberalism and democracy following the French Revolution and through the nineteenth century was often entrenched but the Second Vatican Council of the 1960s saw a shift in the Church's attitude towards democracy. In addition, in recent years, a conflict has emerged between Church doctrine and modern liberalism under Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI. The theme of this book is the Catholic Church's relationship to modern liberal democracy, from the end of the eighteenth century until today, a connection that is situated within the context of the history of ideas itself.
