Célestin Lainé et le breton : la langue pour le combat

Abstract : Célestin Lainé and Breton. This is not an obvious association for anyone who knows anything about Lainé. For example in 1932 this Breton nationalist activist had the monument in Rennes symbolising Brittany’s attachment to France blown up, and just before the Second World War he raised a small Breton army, which was given the name ‘Bezen Perrot’ after the death of Abbot Perrot in 1943. The relationship between Lainé and the Breton language is not anecdotal. It lay at the heart of his cause. However, as was the case with other activists of his generation, it was not so much a fight for the language as a language for the fight.
