L’aristocratie catholique au défi des villes capitales. L’exemple de la Maison d’Arenberg au XIXe siècle

Abstract : In 19th Century Europe,aristocrats remained attracted to capital cities as strategic spaces of political, economic,social and cultural domination whereas they rejected and condemned them as places of mutations or revolutions.That is why the Roman Catholic high nobility durably and ostentatiously took part in the religious reconquest and the multifaceted urban reinvention of the social missions of the Church which aimed to impede – or even to reverse – the process of secularization. Private family archives and newspapers thus reveal that the national branches of the House of Arenberg which were settled in Brussels, Paris and Vienna developed fluctuating and diverging strategies: they adapted to the various and flexible opportunities which these capital cities provided to them, but they were sometimes unsuccessfu lin their attempt to prevent religious and social-political issues from overlapping. This process resulted in their becoming the targets of harsh criticism.
