More information

In 1894, Sangnier founded le Sillon ("The Furrow"), a liberal Catholic movement. He aimed to bring Catholicism into a greater conformity with French Republican ideals and to provide an alternative to anticlerical labour movements. The movement was initially successful, but was eventually condemned by the Pope in the letter Notre charge apostolique in 1910. In 1912 Sangnier founded a replacement group, the League of the Young Republic to promote his vision of social Catholicism.



Sangnier founded a newspaper, La Démocratie, which campaigned for equality for women, proportional representation at elections, and for pacifism. He was also one of the pioneers of the French youth-hostelling movement. In 1928 he employed the 19 year old Émilien Amaury in his first job, from which he went on to found the Amaury publishing empire.
