Abstracts
The author’s starting point is the assumption that the idea of the Christian Republic,
suppressed by the Enlightenment, entered the French 18th-century discourse
through its two secularized versions: the “Great Plan” put forward by
Duke of Sully in Royal Economies (1638) and the Project for Perpetual Peace
in Europe by Charles-Irenee Castel, the abbot of Saint-Pierre (1717). While
the “Great Plan” aimed at establishing a secularized European peace alliance
under the hegemony of France, Saint-Pierre strove to remove all hegemonic
facets of the plan and establish peace according to the principles of equality
of sovereign states. In the second half of the 18th century, Gabriel Bonnot de
Mably and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, in reaction to the Seven-Year War, assumed
different standpoints regarding the heritage of Sully and Saint-Pierre:
although both deemed useful to build upon Saint-Pierre’s pacifist thought,
they rejected his way of establishing a Christian Republic in Europe as essentially
Utopian. The former saw the only way of pacifying Europe in federalization
under the hegemony of a single federal republic. The latter however
rejected this solution as too risky and too difficult to carry out, preferring a
return to the old theory of balance of forces, which enables small, autarchic
and belligerent republics, that must always take into account the certainty that
they could be attacked at any time, to establish only temporary and loose connections
with other (equally small) republics within the frameworks of defensive
alliances.
