Abstract The issue of "the political subject" analyzed among others by Michel Foucault and William Connolly is offering to the political scientists a very important tool for their research. In this paper we have tried to find out if the social and political movement called "Social Christianity" from the late nineteenth century had proposed a new political subject for the modernity dominated by the liberalism and socialism. Thus, Social Christianity was not just a middle way between liberalism and socialism but also along with the emergence of durkheimian sociology as a "new social theology" it represented a daring attempt to overcome the limits of political modernity and thereby has invented a new political subject under the form of modernized Christian guilds.
