Title
Pierre Homier: Apôtre de la bonne entente ou de la reconquête linguistique de Montréal?
Abstract
At the XXI International Eucharistic Congress of 1910, held in Montreal, Bishop Francis Bourne, Archbishop of Westminster, argued that the expansion of Catholicism in North America could only be done in the English language. Quebec politician and nationalist journalist Henri Bourassa, founding editor of Montreal's Le Devoir newspaper, immediately replied to Bourne that, while respecting the rights of his English-speaking co-religionists, he loudly called for Francophone Catholics to protect and defend their language. It was in this context, the author argues, that Joseph-Papin Archambault (1880-1966), a Jesuit priest, writing under the pseudonym Pierre Homier, wrote dozens of articles between 1912 and 1922, calling for the reconquest of the French language in Montreal. The author points out that It was self-evident that Anglophones were the designated adversary.
