As one of the fundamental families of political modernity, Christian Democracy has played an essential part in many areas of contemporary history. The CIVITAS series publishes innovative studies dealing with the history and politics of Christian Democracy in a European and global context and, by doing so, wishes to foster international research and access to sources and to situate Christian Democracy in broader twentieth-century histories. The series is an initiative of CIVITAS – Forum of Archives and Research on Christian Democracy, which was founded by the Istituto Luigi Sturzo (Rome); KADOC Documentation and Research Centre on Religion, Culture and Society (Leuven) and the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung e. V. (Sankt Augustin) in 2013 and serves as a platform for both research and archival institutions and individual archivists and researchers.
The series welcomes academic monographs, edited volumes, and annotated editions of sources that deal with specific topics related to the history and politics of Christian Democracy. In addition to assessment by the Scientific Committee of CIVITAS-FARCD, each volume is submitted to double-blind review.
