About this book

This book examines Anglo-Italian political and cultural relations and analyses the importance of religion in the British 'Orientalist' perception of Italy. It puts religion at the centre of a harsh political and cultural war, one that was fought on international, diplomatic, and domestic levels.

Reviews

“Raponi’s monograph improves our understanding of the British enthusiasm for the Risorgimento by exploring how religion and politics fused together when Italian affairs were on the agenda. … Raponi has consulted a very impressive range of sources. … The book is beautifully written, Raponi’s style being lively and engaging.” (Owain Wright, Journal of Religious History Literature and Culture Reviews, June, 2016)
