Amitiés, inimitiés. Les rapports incertains de l’Eglise catholique avec la Première République voltaïque (1960-1966)

Abstract : The popular memory has kept two things from the relations linking the Catholic Church to the regime of Maurice Yaméogo, first president of the Republic of Haute-Volta: a frank collaboration that collapsed in a sudden divorce, just before the fall of the first republic. This article, in listing the different modes of intervention of the catholic actors in the public space, tries to go back over this vision which is at a first look, too simplistic. So, it is advisable to distinguish the official from the unofficial relations, to highlight the different contexts, to analyse the ways of making politics on a “high” and on a “low” level in the catholic environment and to take into account the diversity in the catholic environment. Because, though the local church proclaims a uniform and a all-embracing image, its members, according to the position they have and according to the different temporalities, intervene in the political field, following variable modalities.
