MOLLES, Dévrig. L'Eldorado de la libre-pensée ? L'Amérique latine comme objectif stratégique de la Fédération Internationale de la Libre Pensée (1880-1914). REHMLAC [online]. 2015, vol.7, n.1, pp.17-36. ISSN 1659-4223.

This article shows that, for the International Free Thought Federation, Latin America was a strategic objective. Argentina and Brazil were the bridgeheads of this deployment. Certain masonic networks were the platform, the social support of this operation. The 11th freethought international congress, in 1904, marked a hinge by provoking a massive mobilization, by widening its program and its doctrine, and by integrating in a new way Latin America, represented by the Argentina, in particular by Manuel B. Ugarte. It is thus about a preliminary study intended to demonstrate the interest to deepen this little known dimension of the cultural history of the contemporary international relations.
