While exploring the meaning of political theology in 1920s Germany, Carl Schmitt had an occasion to address the relationship between the Catholic Church and the modern world. The provocative result, "Roman Catholicism and Political Form", proposes the Catholic religion as a model of political authority that might replace the state. As a scathing critique of liberalism, materialism, and Weber's vision of protestant modernity, this volume will enrich the library of anyone studying the intersection between politics and religious thought.
