Spanish Catholicism
An Historical Overview
Stanley G. Payne

“This is the first complete history of Spanish Catholicism  in English. The history of the Spanish church is rich, complex, and controversial, and this enormous undertaking by Stanley Payne is all the more praiseworthy in view of his determination not to limit his study to the church alone, but to investigate the relationship between the Catholic Church and Spanish culture and nationhood in general.”
—Isaac Aviv, Mediterranean Historical Review
