Overview

The Catholic Church and Democracy in Chile and Peru by Michael Fleet, Brian H. Smith


Recent changes imposed by the Vatican may redefine the Chilean and Peruvian Church's involvement in politics and social issues.  Fleet and Smith argue that the Vatican has been moving to restrict the Chilean and Peruvian Church's social and political activities.  Fleet and Smith have gathered documentary evidence, conducted interviews with Catholic elites, and compiled surveys of lay Catholics in the region.  The result will help chart the future of the Church and Chile and Peru.
