From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Integrism is a term originally coined by liberal French Catholics at the time of the French Revolution to describe those who rejected the principles of the Revolution (liberty, fraternity, equality) in favor of the doctrines taught by the Council of Trent and obedience to the Papacy. It is used derisively in modern times by some who believe that certain Catholics have falsely elevated theological differences into differences in dogma, by degrees. For example, the term was used by liberal Catholics at the time of St. Pius X to deride those who defended his encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis.

Today it used as a pejorative to describe those who adhere to traditional Catholicism. It includes those who separate the Holy See from the governance of Catholic faith, especially where it concerns the Latin rite Mass and the controversy between the normative form of the Mass, and the Mass of the 1962 Missal, or extraordinary form, but also is used toward some who believe and practice traditional Catholicism.

It is also used to describe extreme Islamism.
