The Secularization Theorem in the Long Nineteenth Century

Project description

The emergence of secularisation

Nineteenth century Europe (especially the period between the French Revolution in 1789 and the beginning of World War I) witnessed the emergence of new ideologies as well as conflict over the relationship between state and religion. Secularism was central to the debate among politicians, social scientists and theologians. The EU-funded SECULAR project studies the role of secularisation within modern political and social theories, and the way it influenced and formed historical knowledge. The project will consider how secularised structure can be described in political and social practices. SECULAR will contribute to a historical and theoretical understanding of the emergence of secularisation, through its research into the history of the relationship between religion and society.
