Abstract : From 1880 to 1970, there was 29% of missionary bishops in western France. Such a figure is enough to show dynamic religion was in that area which is number one in France for that matter. Altough it's commonplace to notice the rural background at all there bishops'missionary dedications, this survey confirms the importance of family networks in vocations, as it is the case in the diocese of Lyon. We can notice that the West supplied missionary bishops on all continents who were part of the Propaganda Fide, thus showing the worldwide participation at the region. The overwhelming majority at the number of nominations between 1885 and 1945 compared to the other French dioceses is another revealing fact at the weight of the West. During that period, the numerous parts followed by these missionaries testity for the variety of their actions and the unique aspect of the apostolate methods. Methods that take into account the cultural environement. Those were the pioneers for many local churches. The contribution of de West to the missionary effort of this period remains an emple, to many respects, in comparison to the rest of country.
