Schindler The assumption has become increasingly common since Vatican Council II that Catholicism and liberalism "have successfully resolved" the fundamental differences they had in the past.[1]. Rapid anti-Catholicism in England had been flamed by works like John Foxe's Book of Martyrs illustrating some of the nearly Protestants who were burned between and under Queen Mary I.

"Catholicism and Democracy is a wonderfully fresh interpretation of the fascinating and tortuous path of Catholic political theology over the last two hundred years. With its strong narrative, this original book required me to turn the historical frame upside down and look at issues in a new way."—F. Russell Hittinger, University of Tulsa.
