Answer: antidisestablishmentarianism

The word was first applied in 19th Century Britain to the beliefs of people who were opposed to proposals that the Church of England should no longer be the official (or "established") church. It can now be applied to similar beliefs in other countries.

It is often quoted as the best-known "long word" in the English language. If anyone would like to create a quiz around the even longer "Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis" (45 letters - a lung disease sometimes contracted by miners), then please feel free to do so!
