Abstract : In contact with religious History and economic and social History and inspired by the works of groups sociology and psychology, this thesis wakes an inventory of 2,500 catholic religious associations discovered in the Pays Meusiens from the XIIIth to the XXth centuries (diocese concordat of Verdun). That aera was chosen since it's a division line between the Kingdom of France, the Lorraine and the Southern Netherlands. The first part deals with the notion of brotherhood, makes an inventory of the combined corpus the describes the networks. The second part recounts the development of the brotherly phenomenon from the medieval roots until the turning point in the 1750s, in connection with the constructive project of a catholic society. Finally, the last movement attemps to explain the success of such a structure of sociability by means of relationships it has maintained with society. The last chapter of thesis thus follows the brotherly network until the last moments of peak during the interwar years in order to study the ultimate impact of that long associative tradition.
