Pierre Tiberghien and Palémon Glorieux were prominent Lille theologians who both contributed greatly to the development of the JOC. This article examines their contribution in three parts. It begins with an overview of the 19th century pioneers and precursors, including Lamennais, Ozanam, Gratry and Ollé-Laprune as well as Marc Sangnier’s Le Sillon movement, whose achievements set the stage for the emergence of the JOC.
Secondly, it shows how, after initial hesitations, Tiberghien, who was particularly impressed by the JOC’s concept of specialisation by “milieu,” aided the transition from the Sillon and its rival movement, the ACJF, towards the JOC.
Thirdly, it highlights the role of theology professor, Palémon Glorieux, who founded the first JOCF team in France. He also wrote many articles for JOC chaplains, which were compiled into a series of books published in several editions and languages. Working closely with Cardinal Achille Liénart, he helped promote many of these ideas and methods at the Second Vatican Council.
