Edmond Michelet et la Gauche

Abstract : As an activist Catholic, a "Gaullist" and a member of the French resistance, Edmond Michelet was considered by his friends in politics as the man open to dialogue with the communists because of their solidarity in the concentration camps. This experience was the climax of an evolution which enabled this former member of "Action Française" to discover some of the values of the left, which he understood during the interwar years, or even shared during the dark years 1940-1944, but which he then opposed when gaullism was triumphant. Was it a sublimated Christian ideal, a renewed matrix of uncompromising Catholicism or a new form of secular ministry? Michelet's relationship with the left turns out to be complex. It sheds light on his political and intellectual path, and explains part of the specificity that this man, who was more inclined to action than to speculative reflection, would never stop cultivating.
