During the Algerian war (1954-62), the French Armed Forces resorted to torture, provoking a national debate on the topic. This article focuses on Catholic military chaplains, who on the one hand had to obey their ecclesiastical superiors and on the other acted as confessors and advisors to the military personnel conducting interrogations. The complexity of their position is revealed by the public and private writings these clergymen devoted to torture, showing an ambiguous and sometimes reticent attitude. Key words: Algerian war, Torture, Catholicism, Decolonization, Human rights
Keywords: Guerra d’Algeria, Tortura, Cattolicesimo, Decolonizzazione, Diritti umani
