In a powerful talk from our 2008 Deep in History conference, Patrick Madrid, whose own ancestors fled Mexico during an era of religious persecution, talks about the history of anti-Catholicism in Mexico during the beginning of the 20th century. He looks at the Revolutionaries who fought the government, the government that cracked down on the Catholic Church, and the role that priests and lay Catholics played in all of it. If you’re not familiar with the history of Christianity in Mexico, do yourself a favor and check out Patrick’s talk!
