Abstract: Abstract It is impossible to speak of the era known as the “Great Darkness” without acknowledging the cliché of the Catholic Church’s dominion over social and economic life in Québec. It is a fact that French Canadians were by and large devout Catholics and that the Church exerted a considerable amount of influence over society.
