Christian Socialism

  A moderate form of socialism which prescribes the integration of the Christian (specifically Protestant) principles of peace, brotherhood and non-hierarchical power structure with the socialist principles of equality, communality and non-competitiveness. Inspired by the work of Thomas Carlyle (1795 - 1881) the term was first used by members of the Anglican Church in support of aspects of the Chartist movement of the late 1830s. Although primarily a product of progressive Protestantism, similar movements have been inspired by radical clerics from the Catholic Church in France, the Netherlands and especially Latin America.
