Les évêques missionnaires français entre 1815 et 1968 : De la paroisse rurale à la mission outremer.

Abstract : Between 1815 and 1968, France gave 671 missionary bishops. From individual notices and relying on a prosopographical analysis, we could note that this population comes from the rural part of the most churchgoer dioceses and from dioceses which are the most inclined to the ad gentes mission. Truly pious countrymen, they joined 25 missionary congregations of which expansion has been universal. Pioneers and strategists of the evangelization, they have boosted some more or less adapted pastorals and tried as much as possible to prepare the future native clergy. Progressively, they succeed in bringing out local Churches by structuring their vicarages, little by little divided into dioceses, symbols of growing Churches. And in the middle of the 20th century, several of them stood down in favour of a native hierarchy.
