L'histoire religieuse au miroir de la morale laïque au XIXe siècle en France

Abstract : There is no barrier today for religious studies to encompass secular ethics, but has it always been so ? Historically, secular ethics and the science of religions were borin in the 19th century out of religious criticism. They found legitimacy in the 1880s with the establishment of the 3rd Republic in France. The former was especially employed in primary education as a means to form citizens, while the latter was primarily confined to a relatively small group of specialists within the framework of higher education. The domains of application of morals and religious studies seem, then, to differ. Texts of the first half of the 19th century, however, often show how interconnected these two fields were. It is conseauently opportune to reflect on the historical conditions that led these two fields to being perceived as different.
