La fête républicaine en pays picard au temps de la République opportuniste

  • Renaud Quillet
Registered author(s):

    [eng] The adoption of the I4nth of July as main public celebration in the area of Somme is politically quiet easy, but it's made a bit difficult by the needs of harvest and the lack of money by communes and people at these times of stagnation, which is confirmed by the weight of public bounty. Neither deistic nor nationalist, the republican feast in Picardy celebrates the liberal and secular Republic beloved by the Opportunists, with a particular accent of patriotism, typical of an old corridor of invasion, belonging for a long time to the national community, and for a few years attracted by bou- langism. [fre] Cet article s'inscrit pour l'essentiel dans la filiation des travaux de Mona Ozouf, Rosemonde Šanson et Olivier Ihl. L'adoption du 14 juillet comme fête publique majeure dans la Somme y rencontre moins d'obstacles politiques que de réticences liées aux nécessités de la moisson et aux contraintes financières des communes et des individus en ce temps de marasme, que trahit aussi le poids de la bienfaisance publique. Ni déiste, ni nationaliste, la fête républicaine picarde exalte la République libérale et laïque chère aux Opportunistes, avec une coloration patriotique accentuée, caractéristique d'un vieux couloir d'invasion, de longtemps intégré à la collectivité nationale et un temps sensible au discours boulangiste.
