Political myths found narrative sociabilities, and diplomacy arises out of clashing sociabilities. Christendom to Europe: The Emergence of European Diplomacy Narrative sociabilities of European diplomacy sprang directly from Christian founding myths. The world is God’s creation and His will is that humankind shall live in peace with one another in a society anchored in religion. It follows that when there is strife, it is because people have not lived according to God’s will. Diplomacy, as the work of re-creating the peaceful situation God wills, is understood as a necessity in an imperfect world.

New technologies (the telegraph, the telephone) played a key role, although there was a considerable lag before diplomats found themselves forced to implement changes already well under way in other parts of the political world. Internationalisation eventually brought about important changes—including mounting pressures for accountability, widening in recruitment patterns and multilateral diplomacy. Where accountability is concerned, diplomacy left relations to parliament largely to its top politicians and thickened its interface with the press and the media.

Here we are talking about a build-up of outer bulwarks in the organisation, typically called Press and Information Departments. 9 A widening in recruitment patterns started with a shift from the aristocracy to the bourgeoisie (largely at the end of the nineteenth century); it continued with women (sometime around the Second World War) and went on to encompass new social groups (so far, largely in Western countries). The overall trend has been the same as in the case of technology: diplomats lag behind soldiers and merchants but before very long they mimic the changes in those spheres.
