A priest and history teacher, Lionel Groulx is considered by some to be the spiritual father of modern Quebec. Trained in theology at Rome, he turned to history in order to inculcate a stronger desire by French Canadians to survive in a sea of Anglo-Saxons. During World War I, he assumed the chair in Canadian history at Laval University's Montreal campus.
