Christianism may refer to:

  • Christianity, or its theory and practice
  • The term Christianist is referred to as early as 1992 in a book Europe. La voie romaine by Rémi Brague. In an essay from November, 2004 by Gianni Valente in the English version of the Italy based 30 Days in the Church and the world, Valente credits Professor Brague, Professor of Arabic philosophy at the Sorbonne with the terminology distinction.
  • Christianist, was used by Ruth Walker on May 20, 2005 Christian Science Monitor providing a separate term for political Christians in an article entitled "Onward, Christianist Soldiers".
  • Dominionism, political activism based on conservative Christian principles; Andrew Sullivan used "Christianism" in the May 15, 2006, issue of Time Magazine as a parallel to Islamism to distinguish Christianist political activists from Christians as Islamist political activists are distinguished from Muslims. Sullivan has also used the term "Christianist" in the same context. In sarcastic response James Lileks has stated: "Of course, 'Christianist' is a term of Mr. Sullivan’s invention, and is infinitely applicable; I am probably a Christianist myself if I vote for someone who gives off that Christianist whiff, just as people who vote for Democrats are really closeted Communists, and Libertarians secretly want poor people to be heaped into graves and hosed with napalm."[1]
