Religion et radicalisme

AAC pour une journée d’étude Religion and Radicalism, organisée par the History Research Centre at Manchester Metropolitan University, et the Centre for the Study of Apocalyptic and Millennial Movements, 17 juillet 2019, Manchester.

As part of the city’s series of events commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre, the symposium seeks to explore links between religious and political radicalism in historical and contemporary contexts. How has religion motivated radical political action, from 19th century reformers to contemporary political protest? What makes a political or religious action radical, and who defines it as such? What are the differences, if any, between political and religious radicalism? The symposium will seek to explore these and other issues, and encourages submissions for 20-25 minute papers from both established scholars and graduate students.

Suggested topics might include, but are not limited to: Religious involvement in radical reform movements; Continuities and discontinuities between religious and political radicalism; Definitions of radicalism in political and religious movements; Radicalism and new religious movements; Religious opposition to political radicalism; “Radicalisation” in historical contexts; The memorialisation of radical reform movements.

Please submit a 200-word abstract, with a short biography (no more than 50 words) to the organiser, Dr Andrew Crome ( by no later than 28th February 2019. Contact Info: Dr Andrew Crome, Senior Lecturer in Early Modern History, Manchester Metropolitan University,
