Dans l’ancien monde, où l. a. faith était structurante et commandait à tout et tous, le christianisme a forgé des options essentiels à los angeles régulation des sociétés. Trois principes ont façonné les rapports entre Églises et États : l’autorité vient de Dieu, les pouvoirs temporel et spirituel sont indépendants, les fins humaines sont subordonnées aux spirituelles. Ce cadre restait toutefois assez huge pour justifier des politiques différentes. Les théologiens n’ont pas dicté une réponse precise quand le souverain, fût-il le pape, se trouva confronté à un conflit.
Déstabilisées par les réformes du XVIe siècle, les monarchies surent tirer revenue de los angeles dislocation de l. a. Chrétienté latine, abandonnant l. a. guerre religieuse pour los angeles raison d’État. Aux siècles suivants, alors que le désenchantement du monde ôtait à l. a. Création son element magique, l’essor du rationalisme contribua autant à extraire los angeles faith du champ politique qu’à asseoir los angeles tutelle de l’État sur l’Église.

The few attempts made, on either side of the double-line, to solve the crisis were consistently too little and too late. Decisive initiatives were absent. British and French policies, riven by conflicting advice, interests and considerations, weakened in their formulation by the absence of decisive leadership and in their application both by material weaknesses and the lack of Anglo-French solidarity, ended in failure: the League was ruined as an instrument of peace-keeping, the Italian alliance permanently damaged and Britain and France's mutual relations strained almost to breaking point.
