While it is certain that the Catholic Church has played a political role in Quebec, little is known about the role of the lower clergy in the 20th century. The interventions of the clergy, often unauthorized by the bishops, have complicated relations between Church and State. To what extent were priests allowed to be involved in politics and how was church discipline enforced in those cases ? This article explores the political involvement of the clergy and its ramifications by examining the case of two priests from Quebec, Father Édouard-Valmore Lavergne of Notre-Dame de Grâce and Father Pierre Gravel of Saint-Roch.
