Rome, le 20 février 1892. Un siècle après la décapitation de Louis XVI, le pape Léon XIII publie une encyclique où il exhorte les prêtres de France à rallier la République. La défiance de l'Église envers la démocratie vient-elle de tourner à l'adhésion sans retour? Ce tournant diplomatique du Saint- Siège, retenu sous le nom de « ralliement », marque-t-il une révolution du catholicisme? Ce livre innovant et magistral, qui s'appuie sur les Archives secrètes du Vatican, remet en question l'interprétation communémentreçue. Et si le ralliement n'avait été qu'une mesure d'apaisement? Et s'il n'avait eu d'autre but, en rétablissant le dialogue avec les États européens, que de réaffirmer la primauté du Pontife romain? Et si l'on avait fait d'une manoeuvre circonstancielle une doctrine définitive emportant avec elle une attitude d'esprit et un mode de décision déterminant pour l'histoire catholique au XXe siècle ? À l'heure où l'Église à Rome et la République à Paris s'interrogent toutes deux sur leurs relations mais aussi chacune sur elle-même, cette étude décapante est appelée à faire débat.

Christians in Danger
Author: Marc Fromager
Publisher: Scepter Publishers
After a bloody 20th century for Christians, the 21st remains onerous for those who face minority status in many places. In fact, an estimated 200 million Christians worldwide – that is, one out of every ten – suffer some form of persecution for their faith. For many, there is a price to pay for being a follower of Christ. In Christians in Danger, author Marc Fromager offers a personal account of his experience in twenty countries where the future of Christians is anything but certain. He explains the historical and political situation of these Christians and describes the day-to-day tensions they face. With neither anger nor complacency, he leads us to a greater awareness of their sufferings and reminds us that we are still living in “the time of the martyrs”. But his message is not one of doom-and-gloom pessimism. Yes, Christians are in danger in many countries around the world, and yes, there are reasons for hope. This book takes a look at both. In this book, Fromager walks alongside many well-known “underground” Christians in countries like Saudi Arabia, where the Catholic population is fifteen times larger than it was thirty years ago, but where everything is absolutely forbidden: no churches, no Bibles, no rosaries, no crucifixes. Everything is done in secret. He also takes you to places like the Philippines and France, where Christianity is well established, but where the situation is steadily eroding. These accounts will make you grateful for your own freedoms and will inspire you to pray for and support those brothers and sisters in the Faith who cannot rely on such freedoms. Marc Fromager is director of the French branch of Aid to the Church in Need, a global charity dedicated to helping alleviate the suffering of believers around the world.

The solemn beatification of Pope Pius IX in September 2000 celebrated the heroic virtue of one of the most influential figures of the nineteenth century. Born in 1792, Giovanni Maria Mastai Ferretti was elected Pope on June 16th 1846. His pontificate, the subject of this biographical study, lasted thirty-two years, the longest after that of St Peter himself. Elevated to the Papacy amid the historical backdrop of turmoil and revolution in Italy and Europe, he was also to play a central role in the drama of the Risorgimento that led to the creation of a united Italy. Publication of the English translation of Roberto de Mattei's acclaimed study of Pius IX marks the 150th anniversary of the Pope's solemn definition of the Dogma of Our Lady's Immaculate Conception. Roberto de Mattei holds the chair of Modern History at the University of Cassino (Rome), is vice president of the Italian C.N.R. (National Council for Research) and is well-known in Italy as a journalist and writer.

When the Abbasids overthrew the Umayyads in 750 CE and ushered in Islam’s Golden Age, ideas about gender and sexuality were central to the process by which the caliphate achieved self-definition and articulated its systems of power and thought. Nadia Maria El Cheikh’s study reveals the importance of women to the writing of early Islamic history.
