Archives on the role of the Church during the Spanish Civil War are published

It took nearly 20 years to actually gather the material before publishing it. Now, the documents shed light on the events that started during the summer of 1936, just before the decisive clash that divided Spain. The writings were first introduced to Spain?s Embassy to the Vatican. The authors are Jose Andrés Gallego and Antón Pazos, who work as investigators for Spain?s National Research Council. Also, Cardinal Antonio Cañizares, took part in the process. ; Just like Gomá, he was also Toledo?s Archbishop. The unique collection, is a way for readers to see the war, through the eyes of the Catholic Church, including its fears on the possible role of Nazism in the conflict. Even though the war resulted in the division of Spain, the authors say that a sense of reconciliation comes through from both sides. BR/KLH FFHC-PR
