L’action catholique espagnole et la formation de propagandistes et militants ouvriers

l’ISO et l’HOAC
Feliciano Montero
p. 11-24

Abstracts

The Workers’ Social Institute (ISO) was founded by the Propagandists’ Catholic Association in 1932, and the Catholic Action Workers’ Brotherhood (HOAC) was founded by the Roman Catholic Church’s hierarchy in 1946.

Both institutions had noticed the working class was in a state of “apostasy” and they dedicated themselves to the same goal: reconquer the workers by leaders picked in their midst. But they promoted two opposite models about the training of militants: either a high-powered catholic or a Christian militant worker involved in the working class struggles.

Paradoxically, it was Franco’s regime that witnessed the first real initiative by workers to criticize and revise the former Spanish social Catholicism of the pre civil war period.
