Surveillance et redéfinition du péril clérical : Les dispositifs de surveillance du culte à l’épreuve de la laïcité sous la Troisième République

Abstract : The proclamation of the Third Republic paved the way for the secularization of the French state. As a consequence, since the majority of Catholics were hostile to a liberal political order and social equality whilst being suspected of owing allegiance to a foreign power, the Vatican, they became a target of French intelligence. The archives have left a record of this growing concern to monitor and to better control religious groups that might undermine the republican order. In conjunction with policies of secularism, the religious threat gradually takes on a new face: that of religious congregations and secularized followers. This article is devoted to documenting the adaptation of surveillance systems to a new category of enemies, suspected of disturbing both republican order and ecclesial order.
