    Abstract

    Cet article brosse à grands traits l’évolution du célèbre « dimanche anglais », dont l’austérité a longtemps frappé les voyageurs venus du continent. La question de l’observance du jour du Seigneur, source de clivage au XVII e siècle, semble avoir fait l’objet d’un compromis après la restauration de la monarchie en 1660. Les Sunday Observance Acts de 1677 et 1780, qui marquent l’adhésion de la dynastie régnante à une observance rigoureuse autrefois prônée par leurs adversaires puritains, resteront en vigueur jusqu’à la fin du XX e siècle. La relative souplesse de leur application, qui résistera aux campagnes menées par divers groupes de pression, est probablement la première cause de cette longévité. Si la situation actuelle est aux antipodes des mornes dimanches victoriens, elle est le résultat d’une adaptation graduelle et pragmatique, comme le montre a contrario l’échec de la libéralisation radicale voulue par le gouvernement en 1986.
