Abstract


The relationship between the Church and the State are most often considered as partnership relationships between two types of entities with highly contrasted characteristics due to their mode of administration. These relationships do exists, because the Church brings its contribution to public service in favour of local communities. This article which is based on the case study of the "Canossians Sisters" aims at showing that the Church, through its activities in the village of Datcha, contributes to the improvement of the social and economic living conditions of local communities. Through a field study and a documentary research, this study shows that the mission of the Sisters constitutes a response to the process of secularization of local communities.

Author Keywords: Public programme, social and sanitary conditions, the Church. The State, Religion, secularization.


Abstract: (french)


Les relations entre l'Église et l'État sont souvent considérées comme étant des rapports de partenariat entre deux types d'entité aux caractéristiques fortement contrastées eu égard à leur mode de fonctionnement. Pour réelle que soit la nature de ces rapports, il se révèle que l'Église participe à l'action publique et est au service des sociétés. Dans cet article, en se basant sur le cas des religieuses, « les Sœurs canossiennes », nous avons pour objectif de montrer que l'Église, de part ses actions dans le village de Datcha, contribue à l'amélioration des conditions socioéconomiques des populations. A partir d'une enquête de terrain et d'une recherche documentaire, nous avons observé que la mission des Sœurs canossiennes est aussi une réponse au processus de sécularisation des sociétés.

Author Keywords: Action publique, conditions socio-sanitaires, Église, État, Religion, sécularisation.
