Kathy Schneider (Province of the Pacific) recently published an article in the December 2013 issue of Church History: Studies in Christianity and Culture. The article is part of a larger work on the educational project of the schools of the Company of Mary and the developing conflict with the state during the Second Republic of Spain (1931-1936).

Church History, 82:4, Dec. 2013, p. 848-876.

“The religious question” regarding the role of the Catholic Church in Spanish society shaped the often contentious relationship between the Church and state. This relationship entered a new chapter with the coming of the Second Republic and the passage of the 1931 constitution. Among the legislation aimed at implementing the articles of the constitution was the 1933 Law of Confessions and Congregations that outlawed schools run by religious orders. Despite this law, most religious schools remained open. Using three schools of the Sisters of the Company of Mary in the cities of Tudela, Valladolid and Tarragona, I show how orders adapted under the new government. One of the Church’s primary tactics was to establish front organizations directed by the laity that permitted the religious orders to circumvent the law in order to maintain their schools.

Kathy Schneider: she presently resides in Temecula, California, USA. She holds her doctorate in modern European and World history with a specialty in the history of Spain.
