The world of early modern religiosity in the second half of the eighteenth century described in this book experienced a profound transformation that made it forever a part of history. The repercussions of the French revolution accelerated the transformation in western and central Europe, and in Italy. The mass religiosity of the nineteenth century played its part in ensuring that confessional stereotypes of judgment and behavior persisted into the second half of the twentieth century. New religious movements outside the churches have provided further proof that secularization in the modern world by no means led to the final disappearance of religious meaning and religious constructs in individual and collective life in the 1980s and 1990s.

Keywords:   early modern religiosity, French revolution, secularization
