Power and the Cross: The Rise of Agricultural People’s Front of Peru in Peruvian Politics

Wednesday, June 16
12 – 1 p.m.

The participation of the Agricultural People’s Front of Peru or Frente Popular Agricola del Peru (FREPAP) in Peruvian national politics arose from the combination of American expansionism, the growth of evangelical Christianity, and the emergence of a strong Israelite movement in South America.

Questions and concerns have emerged about the cult-like organization and activities of FREPAP and other Peruvian evangelical groups. Although their mainstream impact is not significant, their presence, force, and participation in Latin American politics cannot be ignored.

Using a theological and sociological framework, Duffy Fellow Carlos Orbegoso Barrios, FCRH ’21, will draw conclusions on the future of FREPAP and the impact of similar parties and movements in Latin America. Barrios double majored in theology and economics.

This is a Duffy Fellows program event.
