The relations between the Catholic Church and the state have been constantly evolving with various forms of government, some of them controversial in retrospect.

For neo-traditionalists, the problem is that Vatican II substantially redefined “the rights of the church.” It elaborated a theology of the secular world and founded on the Catholic “baptism of democracy” celebrated towards the end of World War II—while adding significant new elements to it, especially freedom of religion, freedom of.

The Popes and Democracy This article provides a study of various Papal perspectives on the origin and development of democracy including whether or not such a system benefits modern man.

Thus Catholicism after Trent moved ever further away from democracy and even from clerocracy.
