Economic Development and the Church in French Canada

Economic Development and the Church in French Canada

William Ryan, S.J.

Volume : 21-3 (1966)


The author has chosen to dwell at some length of the methodology, limitations and general conclusions of his research project — his doctoral thesis presented at Harvard University. Among the more interesting findings of this research is the following : there appears to be little hard evidence that the Catholic Church exercised a significantly negative influence on the economic spurt that took place in Québec in the period 1896-1914.
