Contents:
Recasting Catholicism's place in modern Quebec -- "The presence of heroism in our lives": youth, catholicism, and the cultural origins of the Quiet Revolution, 1931-1945 -- "Spiritual athletes": elites, masses, and the betrayal of Catholicism, 1945-1958 -- "A new world is born, and with it a new family": Marriage, sexuality, nuclearity, and the reconstruction of the French-Canadian family, 1931-1955 -- "The defeat of the father": the disaggregation and privatization of the French-Canadian family, 1955-1970 -- "The epic of contemporary feminism has unfolded in the church": sexuality, birth control, and personalist feminism, 1931-1971 -- The final concordat: Catholicism and education reform in Quebec, 1960-1964 -- "An old, ill-fitting garment": Fernand Dumont, Quebec's second revolution, and the drama of de-Christianization, 1964-1971.
Review: "Michel Gauvreau shows that between the 1930s and the 1960s the Catholic Church in Quebec espoused a particularly radical understanding of modernity, especially with regard to youth, gender identities, marriage, and family. Catholicism emerges as an institution increasingly dominated by the priorities of laypeople and the central force in Quebec's cultural transformation."--BOOK JACKET.
