Chapter Summary

Protestant-Sandinista relations remain relatively unexplored in any great depth. In a series of articles, Michael Dodson (et al.) strongly affirms Protestant support for the revolution. This chapter determines the strengths and weaknesses of the body of literature as a whole, highlighting the need for a comprehensive study of Protestant-Sandinista relations and identifying further areas for research. It also includes a perusal of several additional incidental articles touching upon Church-state relations in revolutionary Nicaragua. The most obvious shortfall is the literature’s limited nature and lack of depth. Though Michael Dodson highlights mainly the divisions within Catholicism by comparing Protestant responses with those of a divided Catholic Church, he sheds some light on Protestant-state relations. Thus, Dodson’s concentration on CEPAD yields, at best, a partial picture.

Keywords: Catholicism; Church-state relations; Michael Dodson; protestant-Sandinista relations; protestant-state relations; revolutionary Nicaragua
