The Church and Revolution in Nicaragua
Ohio University, Center for International Studies, Latin America Studies Program, 1986 - 118 من الصفحات
This volume addresses the complex issue of the Christian response to the Nicaraguan revolution from a perspective generally sympathetic to the Sandinista's goals. Luis Serra, himself a Latin American who has worked with the peasantry, argues that the institutional Church has now become a major autonomous source of opposition to the revolution. Laura O'Shaughnessy, analyzing the years leading up to the 1979 revolution and through the Papal visit of 1983, argues that the Church heirarchy has mistrusted the revolution as a threat to its traditional authority.
Both authors view the involvement of the progressive clergy in the revolution as the best way to keep the revolution "Christian," both as an institution and as "the people of God," in revolutionary times, and they ask if Church-state conflict is inevitable at the outset of a social revolution or if adaptation and accommodation are possible.
