Definition of the noun romanism

What does romanism mean as a name of something?

noun - plural: Romanisms

  1. the beliefs and practices of the Catholic Church based in Rome

Explanation

  1. Romanism was the style of painting of a group of artists in the late 15th and early 16th century from the Netherlands who began to visit Italy and started to incorporate Renaissance influences in their work. The greatest artist in the style was Jan Mabuse. The influence of Michelangelo and Raphael showed in the use of mythology and nudity in the paintings.
  2. Romanism is a word that was used as a derogatory term for Roman Catholicism in the past when anti-Catholicism was more common in the United States and the United Kingdom. The term was frequently used in late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century Republican invectives against the Democrats, as part of the slogan "Rum, Romanism, and Rebellion". The term and slogan gained particular prominence in the 1928 presidential campaign, in which the Democratic candidate was the outspokenly anti-Prohibition Catholic Governor of New York Al Smith.
