Res Publica Christiana

'Res publica christiana' is a Latin phrase combining the idea of res publica + christiana to describe the worldwide community of Christianity and its well-being. A single English word with somewhat comparable meaning is "Christendom".

This phrase is notably found in the encyclical Christianae Republicae Salus, a Church document which condemns voltairian and masonic indifferentism in matters of religion.

    Part of the res itself and not about it.
