Religion and Politics in the Risorgimento

Full Product Description

This book examines Anglo-Italian political and cultural relations in the years of the 'Roman Question', and it analyses the impact and importance of religion in the construction of a British 'Orientalist' perception of Italy. It focuses on the British and Foreign Bibles Society's attempts to turn Italy into a Protestant nation, showing how perceived shortcomings in the national character of the Italians convinced the British that such 'Protestantisation' was necessary if Italy was ever to achieve nationhood. Their efforts encountered, however, strong popular and intellectual resistance from both the Italian people and the Catholic clergy, who called on Catholic Ireland to intervene in their defence. By looking at the interplay between religion and foreign policy, this book puts religion at the centre of a harsh political and cultural war, one that was fought on international, diplomatic, and domestic levels.

Religion and Politics in the Risorgimento by Danilo Raponi was published by Palgrave Macmillan in October 2014. The ISBN for Religion and Politics in the Risorgimento is 9781137342973.
