Chapter Summary

This chapter studies Maistres reception in the German-speaking world that is to be completed and shaped, increasing the precision with respect to the literary, political, and ideological relations between the two great counter-revolutionary thinkers, and allows to retrace the political, philosophical, and spiritual positions of the man who was called the Germanic Burke by his contemporaries, within the traditionalist counter-revolutionary and Romantic European networks during the period of the Restoration Congresses. In the first, Bonald assured Gentz that his principles converged with his own. &t;the audacious race of Japhet has never ceased to gravitate towards what is called freedom. He retained the independence of mind of a free thinker, which so characterised him, while promoting and defending the propagation of Maistres ideas and a press with Catholic tendencies, according to his own inclinations and personality, through political and literary networks within which he was an essential figure.
