Jules Ferry, lettre aux instituteurs
Whether we debate it or choose not to, secularism is in the news — whether one likes it or not. Is this a topical issue? The analysis here does not claim to answer this question, but seeks to offer a historical perspective by taking us back to the s, when Jules Ferry was trying to convince both the Senate and schoolteachers within his administration of the necessity of secular morality at school. This secular morality, in his eyes, was indispensable to obligatory schooling.

Shortly after Revolution, the need for intellectual training of French Clergy became more and more apparent, under the First Empire and Restauration they give rise to governmental projects which were unsuccessfull. When lord Bishop Affre, very much concerned about the revival of ecclesiastical studies, occupies the See of Paris, it appears that an agreement between the Church and the Government could be reached, in order to create a cultural center of high ecclesiastical studies. It lasted until date of the establishment of the Catholic University of Pans at this very same place. LXXXI, , p. Ils suscitent sous l'Empire et sous la Restauration des projets gouvernementaux qui n'aboutissent pas.
