Product Description

Review

"The author employs research that is both methodologically and conceptually innovative. She is working where the field of religion and politics in Latin America needs to be headed: research that focuses on the participants themselves and not just an institutional analysis of church and state." -- Michael A. Burdick, Center for the Study of Religion, University of California, Santa Barbara
"This is a revelatory work. The reader is provided with fresh and unusual insights. There are popular accounts of life and death in Central America but none, to my knowledge, that approach the subject from the theological depth which the author possesses." -- Edward L. Cleary, Providence College

From the Back Cover

Martyrdom and the Politics of Religion explores the ways that Salvadoran Catholics sought to make sense of political violence in their country in the 1970s and 1980s by constructing a theological ethics that could both explain repression in religious terms and propose specific responses to violence. Drawing on extensive fieldwork, the book highlights the ways that progressive Catholicism offered a justification and tools for political resistance in the face of extraordinary destruction.
