A broad perspective on the role of religious institutes in social and cultural practices.
This volume examines the cultural contribution of religious institutes, men
and women religious, and their role in the constitution of Catholic communities
of communication in different European countries. The articles focus
on social and cultural history by comparing both discourses and cultural
and social practices, as well as examining international networks and cultural
transference. How did religious institutes function as cultural elites
in the production and mediation of knowledge, ideologies, cultural codes,
and practices? What kind of discursive and operational strategies did they
use to help construct and propagate social Catholicism, ultramontanism,
and confessionalism, and to establish and promote the Catholic communication
system? What were the central mechanisms in the production
of knowledge and how were they incorporated within identity politics?
The volume also takes a broad perspective on the role of religious institutes
in the production and propagation of religious, cultural, and social
practices, and in the socialisation of the Catholic population.
