among 1880 and 1914, tens of hundreds of thousands of guys and girls left France for far-off non secular missions, pushed via the will to unfold the notice of Jesus Christ, strive against devil, and convert the world's pagans to Catholicism. yet they weren't the one ones with eyes fastened on international seashores. simply because the Catholic missionary circulation reached its apex, the younger, staunchly secular 3rd Republic introduced the main competitive crusade of colonial enlargement in French historical past. Missionaries and republicans overseas knew they'd a lot to achieve from operating jointly, yet their starkly assorted motivations frequently led them to view each other with resentment, mistrust, or even worry.

In An Empire Divided, J.P. Daughton tells the tale of the way family members among Catholic missionaries and a bunch of republican critics formed colonial regulations, Catholic views, and household French politics within the tumultuous many years earlier than the 1st global warfare. With case stories on Indochina, Polynesia, and Madagascar, An Empire Divided--the first booklet to envision the position of non secular missionaries in shaping French colonialism--challenges the long-held view that French colonizing and "civilizing" pursuits have been formed through a noticeably secular republican ideology equipped on Enlightenment beliefs. by means of exploring the stories of Catholic missionaries, one of many biggest teams of French women and men operating in a foreign country, Daughton argues that colonial regulations have been frequently wrought within the fires of spiritual discord--discord that indigenous groups exploited in responding to colonial rule.

After a long time of clash, Catholics and republicans within the empire eventually buried lots of their disagreements via embracing a thought of French civilization that awkwardly melded either Catholic and republican beliefs. yet their entente got here at a cost, with each side compromising long-held and much-cherished traditions for the good thing about developing and protecting authority. targeting the much-neglected intersection of politics, faith, and imperialism, Daughton bargains a brand new knowing of either the character of French tradition and politics on the fin de siecle, in addition to the ability of the colonial adventure to reshape European's so much profound beliefs.
