La naissance des organisations d’étudiants catholiques en France

Abstract : Active first in religious education and then in public higher education since the early 19th century, Catholic student groups were extremely diverse both in terms of their organization and the nature of their religious leadership. Although the Catholic Association of French Youth (ACJF, Association catholique de la jeunesse française) was founded in 1891, there was no student organization per se until the creation in 1922 of the French Federation of Catholic Students (FFEC, Fédération française des étudiants catholiques), a very conservative group controlled by Jesuits. In contrast with this first group, the Christian Student Youth (JEC, Jeunesse étudiante chrétienne) founded in 1929 and first mostly active in high schools, offered an alternative oriented towards the apostolate and run by bishops.
