DOI: 10.1558/equinox.44493


Based on 12 months of fieldwork in a northern Catholic community, a resettled community of 1954 bắc di cư, this chapter explicates the manner in which complex church/state histories and religious-political crisis were reconstructed in local historical narratives, and how these developments shaped the future aspirations of local parishioners and forms of peaceful coexistence in Vietnam.
