This module will attempt to relate the Catholic Social Teaching (?CST?) of the Church in its European dimension to the challenges of European construction in political science. After introducing and evaluating the main schools of thought in European integration, the module will take up the question of how the largest single religious tradition within the European Union, the Roman Catholic Church, has contributed to the construction of Europe. The illustration and analysis of CST including the concepts of personalism, subsidiarity, solidarity, participation and the common good will be studied to provide the background to answer the following broader questions of integration and social policy: Do moral values really have a place in the development of the European Union?; Can religions have a place? Do they have a responsibility in the construction of Europe?; Specific attention will be given to the so-called fathers of Europe and the future developments that can be glimpsed through the numerous and recent pronouncements of Pope Francis.
