" La République est laïque, mais la France est chrétienne ", disait le général de Gaulle. Or, depuis la fin des années 1960, la société française a connu des mutations sans précédent qui ont bouleversé " la fille aînée de l'Eglise ", certains prédisant même sa disparition en mettant en avant le recul de la pratique ou le déclin du mariage. Pour en avoir le coeur net, Jean Sévillia est parti à la rencontre de cette France catholique, beaucoup plus jeune, ouverte et diverse qu'on ne le pense communément. Il a enquêté sur ses structures et interrogé ses acteurs, analysé son engagement croissant dans la cité tout en soulignant son enracinement dans notre histoire. Une enquête indispensable portée par la plume exemplaire d'un spectateur engagé.

This book provides a balanced and up-to-date analysis of Catholicism in Britain and France by leading experts on various aspects of the faith in the two hundred years since the French Revolution. By focusing on two countries whose religious establishment and experience were markedly different, and by adopting a comparative approach, the book is able to offer a fresh and unusual perspective on the challenges facing the Catholic Church in the modern world and on its impact not only on believers but also on the two societies as a whole.
