Abstract

This article puts forwards a 'reorientationist' perspective about the genealogy of collective action and artifacts deployed for its orientation. It draws on the history of religion and religious organizations as elaborated by several promoters of the so-called 'new history' in France.These historians (mainly medievalist) can be helpful in writing a different genealogy of contemporary models of collective action (i.e. ways of reaching a goal together) and their institutional context in western countries.They can also facilitate a critical understanding of long-range organizational dynamics.

Keywords: Catholic Church, Genealogy of Collective Action, History of Religious Organizations, History of Managerial Practices, New History
