Notre Dame: Theology professors archive the rise of the contemporary Latin American Catholic Church

Notre Dame: Theology professors archive the rise of the contemporary Latin American Catholic Church. “Starting in the 1950s, political upheaval began to intensify in various countries across Latin America, which sparked significant changes in the contemporary Latin American Catholic Church. Although these events have been recorded, the materials are spread throughout Latin America, which limits the capability of scholars to study these important moments. To preserve and share this history, Notre Dame researchers are collecting a variety of audio recordings, handwritten documents, and texts to develop a digital library of critical events that took place throughout Latin America over more than 60 years and ultimately changed the Catholic Church.”
