Abstract

GONCALVES, Marcos. 'Good press' missionaires: Ave Maria magazine and the challenges of the catholic press in the early years of the 20th century. Rev. Bras. Hist. [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.55, pp. 63-84. ISSN 1806-9347.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-01882008000100004.

This article emphasises the role of catholic press in Brazil in the early years of the 20th century. In a particular way, it focuses the performance of the popular Marian magazine Ave Maria, founded in 1898. This work also discusses how Brazilian institutional Catholicism intended to defend efficiently the multiple interests of the Catholic Church before progressive cultural and political demands, by consecrating a project founded on the creation and expansion of the confessional press.

Keywords : catholic press; Catholicism and Integrism; religion and politics.
