Abstract

The aims of this article are to explore the diversity of Catholic reactions facing state terror in Córdoba, Argentina, during the 1970s and to analyse how different Catholic groups redefined their relations with the State in the public sphere. To do that, I will use case study methodology applied to the kidnapping of an American priest and five seminarians. I will show how religious beliefs shape to some extent how Catholic social actors respond to political events. Different understandings of Catholicism produced different responses to state terror.

L’A. étudie la diversité des réactions des groupes catholiques vis-à-vis de la terreur d’Etat à Córdoba dans les années 1970 et leurs relations dans la sphère publique. L’exemple de l’enlèvement d’un prêtre américain et de séminaristes permet de comprendre comment certains catholiques, en tant qu’acteurs sociaux, répondent aux évènements politiques.
