FOULARD, Camille. The French Congregationalist Educational Apostolate and National Construction in Mexico: an exemplary approach to the religious history of international relations. Estud. hist. mod. contemp. Mex [online]. 2011, n.41, pp. 79-101. ISSN 0185-2620.
This article seeks to present the problem of the implementation of contemporary French Congregationalist missionaries in Mexico at a time that not only takes one back to religious and missionary history as it could have been described by traditional European historiography. The difficulties faced by congregations specializing in teaching in disseminate their work during the first half of the twentieth century should also be analyzed on the basis of the Mexican and French national contexts characterized by the development of laicization and the secularization of society, in which the subject of education became the main vector for imposing opposing projects for society.
