ALVEAR TELLEZ, Julio. The Corpus politicum of St. Pius X: an anti-modern interpretation. Rev. estud. hist.-juríd. [online]. 2019, n.41, pp.437-465. ISSN 0716-5455.

In recent decades, the corpus politicum of Saint Pius X has been the subject of various readings. In this work we return to the original position: the one that inserts the corpus politicum pianum within the broad anti-modern view of the pontiff, the reverse of his positive design of Instaurare omnia in Christo. For such effects, the fundamental lines of the existing bibliography are reviewed and the core of the political doctrine of Pope Sarto without intermediaries is exposed, starting from the direct sources, from the key of interpretation chosen. The principles of the corpus politicum pianum maintain, in substance, its validity.

Keywords : St. Pius X; Modernity; Modernism; secularism; democracy.
