Christian Socialism

The movement seeking to imbue society, economics, and politics with Christian values, prevalent in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and emphasizing harmony among diverse groups. It teaches that man must have justice in society and advocates a "middle ground" between socialism and capitalism, asserting that property belongs both to the State and to the individual.
