Description - Claiming the Virgin by Robin Nagle
This is an exploration of a particularly vivid example of liberation theology, an innovative religious and political movement that flourished in Latin America for more than 20 years. The text presents the differing interpretations and ritual practices of community residents on either side of the issue, and explains how, despite its failures, liberation theology left a legacy still felt in Recife and other parts of Latin America.
