Much more recently than the time of the Apostolic Constitutions or even the medieval guilds, though, Pope Leo XIII's immediate predecessors had taken a keen interest in the revolutionary, often violent upheaval that followed in the train of Europe's industrialization and, earlier, the cult of reason that was a by-product of the self-styled "Enlightenment." The French Revolution and the Terror, Napoleon's continuation of the Twelve's war on the Church, the sansculottic Jacobinism of Thomas Paine, and the troubling antiauthoritarianism of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Friedrich Nietzsche, Ludwig Feuerbach, and Arthur Schopenhauer, all combined to make the challenges to the Catholic Church's duties of evangelization unmistakably clear.
