Freeman, John , & Williams, Roger L.


Contains a history of relations between the municipality and the diocese of Grasse from the origins of the city in the 12th century to the separation of church and state in 1905. Proposes that laicization of local institutions, not dechristianization, was the source of modernity in Grasse.
