History Now with Dr. Eric Morier-Genoud

Dr Eric Morier-Genoud talks to Barry Sheppard about the role of the Catholic Church in Mozambique while it was a Portuguese colony and after its war of independence.

Far from being a monolithic entity that scholars often assume it to be, Dr. Morier-Genoud shows that the Catholic Church is in fact a complex array of elements that have considerable autonomy stemming from cultural, historical, national and sociological factors, an autonomy that can put them at considerable variance.
