In an earlier book, Making History in Twentieth-Century Quebec (1997), Ronald Rudin argued that recent Quebec historiography, in its rush to characterize French Canada as typical of other modernizing western societies, had lost sight of the distinctive features of the Quebec past. In this book, which examines commemorative activities in Quebec City around the figures of Samuel de Champlain, the city's founder, and Fran ois de Laval, its first bishop, he seems to double back.

Their scope is not identical

Their scope is not identical. Rudin pays equal attention to the process by which the accidental discovery in l877 of the remains of Mgr François de Laval was prelude to an unexampled reburial the following year. This provided, under clerical direction, a dramatic expression of national identity. It also served to stimulate a campaign of a somewhat different nature to recognize.

Ronald Rudin's latest book points towards an explanation. What's important for citizens to know about history is determined by prominent social, cultural, or political groups whose purposes are served by the celebration of particular elements from the past. Rudin describes the planning and execution of public events honouring two historical figures: Samuel de Champlain, founder of Quebec and first governor of Canada; and François de Laval, the first Bishop of Quebec. Neither had attracted much public interest before the 1870s.

The late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries saw an unprecedented wave of public celebration of the past. Throughout the western world, heroes and great events from earlier times were celebrated through such devices as staging lavish parades, constructing intricately designed monuments, and mounting theatrical re-enactments of pivotal moments in history. In Quebec, two individuals occupied centre stage. Between 1878 and 1908, Samuel de Champlain, the founder of Quebec City (and often referred to as the lay father of French-Canadian civilization), and Mgr François de Laval, the first bishop of Quebec (and often seen as French Canada's religious father), were feted in four commemorative mega-events staged in the streets of Quebec City.

Based largely upon the archival documents left behind by the lay and ecclesiastical leaders who organized the celebrations of Champlain and Laval, Ronald Rudin's study describes the complicated process of staging these spectacles. The vast array of leaders, lay and clerical, French and English-speaking, rarely saw eye to eye about either the form or the goal of any one commemorative celebration. Accordingly, the tens, if not hundreds of thousands who came out to view these celebrations saw events with numerous messages. An examination of the four spectacles, which took place over a period of thirty years, provides an opportunity to view both changes in the nature of commemorative celebrations across the western world and tensions within Canadian society.
