  • El milenarismo de Augusto C. Sandino(110 clicks)
    "Este Estudio analiza la vida del caudillo nicaragüense Augusto C. Sandino en función del desarrollo de sus ideales milenaristas . Sandino demostró tener un enorme sentido de misión profética en su lucha contra las tropas norteamericanas que ocupaban su país. Continuando su contacto con creencias teosóficas en México entre 1929-1930, sus esperanzas milenaristas se volvieron más radicales y empezó entonces a creerse un mesías. También llegó a creer que los Estados Unidos son la encarnación misma del mal y que Dios escogió a los nicaragüenses para luchar contra ese mal y para redimir a los oprimidos del mundo. "
