La ciencia en disputa. El vinculo entre la ciencia y el catolicismo en la Argentina del siglo XIX (1860-1900)

This thesis aims to study how the argentinean catholics developed a discursive framework regarding science during the second half of the nineteenth century. Through the analysis of diverse archival sources, such as periodical publications, pamphlets, speeches and parliamentary debates pertaining to this period, we propose that a strong controversy erupted, regarding the meaning of science, between the defenders of the Church and those who, identifying themselves a more or less radical anticlericalism, opposed them. Thus, in this dissertation we try to observe the way in which science, with its strong symbolic imagery, became a key element in the clashes between catholics and anticlerical groups in the final decades of the nineteenth century.
