Modern Intellectual History
Jan-Werner Müller is tracing three strategies for finding a place for Christianity––and Catholicism in particular––in the modern democratic order: the creation of a Christian demos, a demos constrained by Christian institutions, and Christian Democratic party politics. He aims to draw larger normative lessons from this history, especially for thinking about the relationship between Islam and democracy.
