 EIAL VIII1 - The Ideology of the Mexican Revolution, 1910-40
The growth of political opposition in 1908- 10, although it was coloured by Catholic reformism, did not involve anticlerical agitation: Madero took a relaxed attitude toward the Church and, as President, welcomed and applauded Catholic political mobilization, which was particularly strong in the centre-west of Mexico.
Anticlericalism was not a mainstream, popular cause: in an overwhelmingly rural society, it emanated from the cities; it is hard to interpret it as a cynical bid for votes and mass support.
Hence the making of the historic pact between the Mexico City workers and the anticlerical Constitutionalists in 1915: a pact which combined mutual self-interest with a shared urban, anticlerical, anti- rural ethos and which eventually evolved into the durable -and ardently anticlerical- alliance between Calles and the CROM in the 1920s.

 Review: The Enlighenment and Religion. The Myths of Modernity
The point that proof of influence is insufficiently addressed is well made, though Barnett is obviously keen enough to ensure that the primary texts he cites – many anticlerical in character – carry a decent burden of importance.
The refusal of the sacraments crisis in the 1750s is usefully linked with existing Parisian anticlericalism and Barnett attempts a comparison between Jansenism and the struggle of seventeenth-century English Protestant dissenters that might have been more clearly articulated.
Barnett has a strong case in saying that the philosophes were a small band without the numerical strength possessed by the Jansensists and that their claim to the credit for securing the exiling of the Jesuits from France in 1762–4 was downright cheeky.

Usually approached in the context of national politics, the two opening essays provide useful perspective on the international aspects of both the catholic revival and the anticlerical response that bolster the editors’ claim that the culture wars were a pan-European phenomenon.
He argues that anticlericals in different European countries developed a common intellectual foundation through the translation of key texts; that they made contacts across borders and consciously adopted models from other countries; and that “the energies generated by conflict in one state raised the emotional temperature among anticlericals in other states” (p.
Anticlericalism, in short, was not just a convenient political movement growing out of the needs of particular national parties and an intellectual elite, but a pan-European movement with a common belief system, vocabulary, and social roots.

In preliminary fashion, this essay seeks to bridge these gaps in the history of French mentalities by presenting a concerted study of indigenous folk magics and perdurable anticlerical attitudes characterizing the residents of La Rochelle and its hinterland, key actors embroiled in this important theater of the French Reformation.
In the process, magical folkways and anticlerical attitudes can be better appreciated as interconnected components within unitary, popular systems of belief antedating, challenging, and dynamically interacting with more orthodox religious movements like the Reformations.
Of course, complete removal of the first estate would have been unthinkable to early modern French congregants who frequently expected their ministers to perform vital, quasi-magical rituals, like field rogations, blessings of farm animals, exorcisms, and relic parades, to protect the community from epidemic diseases, threatening weather, and material or spiritual harm.

Anticlericalism (opposed to clericalism) developed in particular during battles between congregations; however, in 1905, the separation between Church and State constituted a "lay pact" which mitigated this sentiment.
Strangely, the weaker the group that is persecuted, the stronger the hatred directed against it; in this respect, antiProtestantism falls between anticlericalism and antiSemitism.

 Mennonite Life - March 2000 - Book Reviews
Entitled "Anticlericalism and Moral Improvement," the second chapter sets the context for Goertz's basic and continuing interpretation of Anabaptism; namely, that it grew out of a cultural context in which anticlericalism was thriving.
It is significant that Menno and all the early Anabaptist confessions speak concerning the "office" of ministry in a way that affirms its importance to the life of the church.
His anticlericalism was never a rejection of the need for ministerial leadership within the church, but it was a strong critique of the abuse which is always a potential within every responsible office, both within and without the church.

The first government failed to establish a nationwide network of state primary schools, and in 1842 the conservative government agreed on a plan to transfer the control of the existing state primary schools to the Catholic church— in effect turning the educational establishment over to the church.
By 1859, after violent anticlerical street protests, the first school war concluded with the establishment of parallel Catholic and secular state school systems in an uneasy modus vivendi.
Not until 1958 did clerical and anticlerical forces lay down their arms in the struggle for the control of the Belgian schools.

That is essentially the kind of anticlericalism which existed in the middle ages, although medieval anticlericalism had the distinctive feature that paradoxically, on surviving evidence, it was expressed predominantly by clerics.
