Social Catholicism

Causeur has inaugurated a series on the history of social Catholicism in France. This movement exerted an important influence of French social policy, especially in the post--WWII period, when Christian Democratic influence was high. The background provided here by Jean-Louis Schlegel, who, with Denis Pelletier, has just published À la gauche du Christ. Les chrétiens de gauche en France de 1945 à nos jours, Seuil, 2012, is worth reading.
