Le processus de décision dans un synode diocésain

Abstract : This study is undertaken with a view to present the evolution of an overall pastoral project under the conciliar impetus implementation of 1963 to 2000 in the diocese of Nice by three bishops : Mgr. Mouisset, Mgr. Saint-Macary and Mgr. Bonfils. It revolves around three concepts: conversion, structures, evangelization that meet the three criteria defined by Bishop Saint-Macary for "Diocese 2000" operation: proximity, shared responsibility and evangelization. The study of the Nice synodal process sends us back to life in communion with the local Church. Of all the forms of expression of communion, we retain that of synodality. The decision process is fundamental in a diocesan synod. We will look for its mechanisms in this thesis. We will see how it binds to the "overall pastoral" or pastoral communion that is the deep convergence of all forms of action and presence in the world, unity and mutual interpellation of all forces apostolic : priests, religious and laity. If so, the "co-responsibility of all" reflects the mission of the baptized in the Church as an individual, the synodal decision represents the expression of the community of the baptized. We'll see if the process of decision comes in or not. This thesis wants to answer the question of whether the decision process in a diocesan synod as synodality factor tends to regulate the communal aspect of the Church and at least partly reveal the personality of the bishop. This is a multi disciplinary study. The review of the synod process, in its theoretical and practical context, is based on the areas of the sociology of religion, ecclesiology and canon law
