Through a lot of its lifestyles, Québec’s pals referred to as it the “priest-ridden province.” this present day, even though, Québec society is staunchly secular, with a contemporary welfare kingdom outfitted on lay provision of social services—a transformation rooted within the “Quiet Revolution” of the 1960s.

            In Beheading the Saint, Geneviève Zubrzycki reviews that transformation via an in depth research of the yearly ceremonial dinner of St. John the Baptist of June 24. The celebrations of that nationwide vacation, she exhibits, supplied a venue for a public contesting of the dominant ethno-Catholic notion of French Canadian id and, through the violent rejection of Catholic symbols, the articulation of a brand new, secular Québécois identification. From there, Zubrzycki extends her research to the current, the position of Québécois identification in fresh debates over immigration, where of spiritual symbols within the public sphere, and the politics of cultural heritage—issues that still provide perception on comparable debates in different places within the world.
