Abstract:An attempt to illustrate how popular puritanism, which has become the langauge of the state's critics, tends to check 'state reformism', which has been the means of power for almost two decades. Political strategy and religious tactics, governmental phraseology and Muslim vocabulary - until now consistently intertwined in the Algerian consensual society - are becomeing differentiated. Between official (or national) Islam and popular Islam, there are latter to put pressure on the former. Notes.
