Alexis de Tocqueville once wrote that the people reign over the American political world like God over the universe, unwittingly casting democracy as the political instantiation of the death of God. According to Jeffrey W. Robbins, Tocquevilles assessment remains an apt observation of modern democratic power, which does not rest with a sovereign authority but operates as a diffuse social force. By linking radical democratic theory to a contemporary fascination with political theology, Robbins envisions the modern experience of democracy as a social, cultural, and political force transforming the nature of sovereign power and political authority. Robbins joins his work with Michael Hardt and Antonio Negris radical conception of network power, as well as Sheldon Wolins notion of fugitive democracy, to fashion a political theology that captures modern democracys social and cultural torment. This approach has profound implications not only for the nature of contemporary religious belief and practice but also for the reconceptualization of the proper relationship between religion and politics.
