Finistère du Front Populaire, lutte pour l'hégémonie et logique de blocs

Abstract : This research aims to analyze the impact of a significant event, the popular front on a department, Finistère, largely rural and heavily influenced by the religious question. Clashes are numerous throughout the period of the interwar period. A powerful agricultural union developed there based on an economy based mainly on rural areas. It seeks to filter out external influences, including those oft he Catholic hierarchy, and to ensure its influence over society through corporatism. Face, urban society, which certainly hegemonic ambitions, lives its own contradictions between a workers’ movementand changing an elite that hardens his positions before the emancipation of the wage protests. Penetration of social ideas is weak in the countryside, in view of the populations concerned. The Catholic Church, through a well-established militant unit, seeking to consolidate its grip on the whole of society, the crisis radicalizes the positions of each other. Fighting intensifies during the period. We use the analytical tools on social movements to measure the actors mobilization capacities, crossing sources to confront attitudes. We look to see how rub the urban and rural areas and if this apparent position of blocks is not disturbed by a third actor, the clerical bloc. The struggle for hegemony is played not only in the political field but also in the social field.
