Former Visiting Fellow Gema Santamaria (history) has recently published an article in the Cambridge University Press entitled "The Lynching of the Impious: Violence, Politics, and Religion in Postrevolutionary Mexico (1930s–1950s)." In it, she examines various cases of lynching and analyzes the impact that religion had in postrevolutionary Mexico. It examines how Catholicism did not end violence, but propelled it. It was commonly believed that the use of violence was a reasonable approach to defend religious beliefs and symbols.
