Abstract

Based on a qualitative approach, this article analyzes the current role of religion in Spanish prisons and hospitals. More specifically, the article explores the daily tensions and negotations between the Catholic Church, the religious minorities and the secular professionals working in these institutions. The complexity of the micro religious/secular dynamics, together with the mono/multiconfessional tension and the religious/spiritual divide going on within these institutions, demonstrate the impossibility of drawing a single model to account for the way in which religion is being dealt with in contemporary Spanish public institutions.
