Pouvoir et faith en Europe - XVIe-XVIIIe siècle
Si le religieux est aujourd’hui affaire personnelle et n’est pas censé interférer avec le politique, il en allait tout autrement dans l’Europe moderne.
Dans l’ancien monde, où los angeles faith était structurante et commandait à tout et tous, le christianisme a forgé des techniques essentiels à los angeles régulation des sociétés. Trois principes ont façonné les rapports entre Églises et États : l’autorité vient de Dieu, les pouvoirs temporel et spirituel sont indépendants, les fins humaines sont subordonnées aux spirituelles. Ce cadre restait toutefois assez huge pour justifier des politiques différentes. Les théologiens n’ont pas dicté une réponse specified quand le souverain, fût-il le pape, se trouva confronté à un conflit.
Déstabilisées par les réformes du XVIe siècle, les monarchies surent tirer revenue de los angeles dislocation de l. a. Chrétienté latine, abandonnant los angeles guerre religieuse pour los angeles raison d’État. Aux siècles suivants, alors que le désenchantement du monde ôtait à l. a. Création son element magique, l’essor du rationalisme contribua autant à extraire l. a. faith du champ politique qu’à asseoir los angeles tutelle de l’État sur l’Église.

Los angeles Révolution française peut être interprétée à los angeles fois comme le produit de ce qu'elle a appelé l'Ancien Régime, et comme l'avènement de los angeles civilisation où nous vivons depuis. Dans le best cas, elle est le grand spectacle de ce qui s'est passé avant elle ; dans le moment, elle inaugure le cours de l'égalité et de los angeles démocratie modernes. Ce livre est une tentative pour l. a. penser sous ces deux points, en renouant avec des questions posées par l. a. culture historiographique du XIXe siècle.
