Riese, Christina: Hunger, Armut, Soziale Frage. Sozialkatholische Ordnungsdiskurse im Deutschen Kaiserreich 1871–1918, Paderborn 2019
In scholarship on the Catholic milieu, the notion of a relatively self-contained, anti-modern social sphere was long the dominant interpretation. Critics of this viewpoint have argued first and foremost that it fails to adequately account for the diversified social groups and multiple binding forces of the Catholic life experience.
The present study picks up with that line of critique, examining Catholic social discourses on ›order‹ (›Ordnungsdiskurse‹) and, in the process, the debates about ›hunger,‹ ›poverty,‹ and the ›social question‹ that were conducted within the Catholic milieu.
