Some of the greatest writing on the idea of democracy emerged as Europe was threatened by Nazi Germany.  At the centre of that literature were documents that strongly associated the democratic polity with Christianity.  Of course, one cannot have a ‘Christian democracy’, because the focus of ideal democracy is rule for and by all citizens, regardless of creed, education level or socio-economic status.
