Abstract

This thesis will examine the evolving behavior of the Chilean Catholic Church towards the military dictatorship in Chile. The period covered will span from September 11, 1973 until 1976. Initially, the Church pledged cooperation, but over the subsequent seven years it gradually adopted an increasingly confrontational stance in opposition to the regime and its abuses. The aim of this thesis will be to analyze the factors that caused the Church to realize this change.
