Opus Dei during the pontificate of Pius XII (1939-1958)



A workshop was held in Madrid in 2022 to analyze the stage in the history of Opus Dei that coincided with the pontificate of Pius XII (1939-1958). Based on this research, a book was published: graduate "Gentes, escenarios y estrategias. Opus Dei during the pontificate of Pius XII, 1939-1958".
