Professor launches book on Church and Cuban revolution

.- Professor Ignacio Uria of the University of Navarre in Spain released a new book which sheds light on the Church's involvement in the Cuban revolution during the last century.

“I encourage this researcher to continue with his contributions, which undoubtedly are much needed at this time of change,” Archbishop Thomas G. Wenski of Miami said in praise of the book.

Uria discussed his work, “Church and Revolution in Cuba: Enrique Perez Serantes (1883-1968), the Bishop who saved Fidel Castro,” during a Jan. 3 event at Washington D.C.'s Georgetown University.

“Professor Uria has recovered a key figure of the Church in Cuba in the 20th century, Enrique Perez Serantes, who seemed to have irremissibly disappeared from history,” Archbishop Wenski noted. 

During the reception organized by Georgetown's Center for Latin American Studies, Professor Eusebio Mujal-Leon of the Department on Government lauded Uria's book for “combining historical rigor with a fast-paced style.”

The book was also presented during an event at the University of Miami organized by the Institute for Cuban and Cuban American Studies, which recently named Uria a senior research associate.

Uria belongs to the Cuba 21 Project at Georgetown University, where he carried out research from 2009-2010. He also spent three years gathering facts from the U.S. National Archives, the national archives in Madrid and the archives at the archdioceses of Havana and Santiago.
