The Regionalist Movement in France 1890-1914


Oxford University Press

The study of Belle Époque regionalism in France has shown how the praxis of the regionalists came to underpin and indeed dominate their thinking. More fundamental still, however, was Jean Charles-Brun's belief in reconciliation. Many of the most prominent characteristics of the regionalist movement, led by Charles-Brun and the Fédération Régionaliste Française, may be traced not only to the Felibrige but also to a wide range of other associations. This chapter deals with Charles-Brun's intellectual and political concerns by looking at his Catholicism and the link between regionalism and Christian democracy. The major themes of Charles-Brun's literary and artistic criticism, the importance of local images and techniques in art, and the power of popular art, were closely linked to his belief that the Church had to form a new relationship with the people.
