Summary/Abstract: The relationship between Marxism and religion has often been taken for granted. In fact, history shows how these areas have never been completely isolated and, at times, they have come together. In this article we will reflect on this relationship through some elements of primary importance in the discourse of Antonio Gramsci, as a theorist of the philosophy of praxis. We will compare some elements of the Sardinian author's thought with that of three protagonists of Catholic philosophical and political thought from as many different backgrounds: Joseph De Maistre, for the conservative sphere; Gilbert Keith Chesterton, for the Republican-Democrat; James Connolly, for the Communist one.
