Description

English

This booklet is catalogued at the BNCRM in a miscellany called Religion, which contains many booklets by military chaplains. Giuseppe Mazzini (1805-1872) was the founder of Risorgimento, a political movement aimed at the reunification of Italy. In this booklet he doesn’t speak about Catholicism, but the lay patriotic religion of the nation: the People’s Gospel, different from Church religion and from communism, which rose up after the Soviet Revolution.

Italian

Questo opuscolo è catalogato in una miscellanea intitolata “Religione”, che contiene molti opuscoli scritti da cappellani militari. Giuseppe Mazzini (1805-1872) fu il fondatore della corrente repubblicana del Risorgimento all’epoca dell’unità italiana. In questo libretto però non parla del cattolicesimo, bensì della laica “religione patriottica” della Nazione: il Vangelo del Popolo, differente dalla religione chiesastica e dal comunismo, nato dopo la rivoluzione societica.
