Christian Democracy is a political ideology, born at the end of the 19th century, largely as a result of the papal encyclical Rerum Novarum of Pope Leo XIII, in which the Vatican recognizes workers' misery and agrees that something should be done about it, in reaction to the rise of the socialist and trade-union movements.
The position of the Roman Catholic Church on this matter was further clarified in a subsequent encyclical, Quadragesimo Anno, by Pope Pius XI in 1931.
The duty of the State to care for its citizens is of some importance for Christian Democrats, but they generally do not support Christian socialism, and, in recent decades, Christian Democratic Parties in Europe have shifted more towards the conservative position of reducing the role of the State in the economy.
