The Sillon was a French Catholic lay youth movement which, from 1899 to 1910, worked on building a democratic community anchored on Christian values. The purpose of my essay is to analyze how this aim, inspired by the apologetics of Maurice Blondel, took form in Sillonist literary theory and fiction: in the Sillonists’ wish to create a popular art and in the preference they gave to psychological realism. My analysis is based on the movement’s journal and on a novel by Henry du Roure, Life of a Happy Man.
