Framed by a cooperation between CIRRuS and the Centro Regional de Investigaciones Multidisciplinarias (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México), Cecilia Delgado realized a half-year internship in our team at Bielefeld in order to evaluate her research data from Mexico. She wrote an excellent dissertation which has been awarded with the book award of the Mexican society of religious studies (RIFREM).

Review:

Cecilia Delgado Molina's book touches on two of the most sensitive issues in Mexico today: violence and religion. As a result of a doctoral investigation, the author immerses herself in the logics of action of different Catholic groups in Morelos between 2012 and 2017, who, faced with the chilling increase in violence, were questioned and left to march fighting for peace. The study explains in detail the tensions, differences and disputes of a group of believers with different religious traditions but who, within the framework of the same institutional umbrella, must seek a way out of the problem that afflicts everyone.

The author contributes from three different fronts: on the one hand, she makes a re-reading of the ecclesial history of Morelos to understand the complexity of the religious field in our days; on the other, it applies HabitusAnalysis, a methodological tool that allows decoding the logics of action, and finally, the theoretical apparatus of Pierre Bourdieu is used, particularly the notion of the field and the interaction between religion and politics. The book is an innovative and intelligent reflection that allows us to better understand one of the passions that accompany Mexico today and that it is up to sociologists to explain. Without doubt, an indispensable work.

Hugo José Suárez, Mexico, 2020
