Educating the Faithful
Religion, Schooling, and Society in Nineteenth-Century France
Sarah A. Curtis
"An exemplary work of historical scholarship."—History of Education Quarterly
"Original and important.... Educating the Faithful has provided an enormous service to historians of modern France."—Journal of Modern History
"Highly informative and well-written."—TLS
Focusing on Catholic primary schooling in France from 1830 through World War I, Curtis shows how religious education played a key role in transforming France into a modern nation. She finds persuasive evidence that the French Catholic teaching orders created the culture needed for the development of a modern educational system.
