He demonstrates that the Church's historical scholarship, social science, pastoral care, and political practice amounted not to a culturally-backward spectacle of intolerance, but to a campaign for stability drawn from the frontiers of erudition and globalisation. In seeking to sever the link between zeal and chaos, the church and its enemies were thus united in an Enlightenment project, but bitterly divided over what it meant in practice"--"@en ;
