The European Union and the Catholic Church
Petr Kratochvíl and Tomáš Doležal are the authors of this comprehensive monograph published with the prestigious Palgrave Macmillan Publishing House.

Building on the insights of political theology, it connects an analysis of the political interactions of these two institutions with their broader normative outlooks and an analysis of their ideational orders.
