Les pratiques religieuses d’une société politisée : Paris au temps du second jansénisme

Abstract : Scholars have long considered the eighteenth century Paris as an early model of de-Christianization. This paper aimes to reexamine this scheme by describing in their frame of context the religious practices of Parisians. These practices generally fall within the framework of the parish and parish factories, although deviations from the norm are not uncommon. Of course, they depend on social identities. But above all, the Jansenist quarrel, due to the consequences of the apostolic constitution Unigenitus (1713), gives meaning to the gestures of belief. Both the Jansenists and their antagonists, the dévots, have their own priests, their own sacred places, their own saints. In the Age of Enlightenment, the mobility of the catholic religion remains as strong as ever.
