Summary "Michel Gauvreau shows that between the 1930s and the 1960s the Catholic Church in Quebec espoused a particularly radical understanding of modernity, especially with regard to youth, gender identities, marriage, and family. Catholicism emerges as an institution increasingly dominated by the priorities of laypeople and the central force in Quebec's cultural transformation."--Jacket
