ROMERO PEREZ, Elena. The conservative mentality and the Catholic Church: criticism and defense through the satiric and traditionalist press in Santiago. Latinoamérica [online]. 2010, n.51, pp. 63-83. ISSN 1665-8574.
Although the problems between the Church and the State were smaller in Chile than in other countries such as Mexico, it is an emblematic case of the consequences of the archbishop succession (1878-1886), during that time it was shown on the capitol's press the conservative mentality that defended the church's prerogatives over the State, as well as their influence over the society, versus the criticism that this position originated particularly on the satirical press. Two opposite positions can be observed, that used different strategies for spreading and consolidating their ideals on both the Chilean and Santiago societies.
