Show Summary Details


This chapter explores how Catholicism operated in VOTF as a cultural code for participants, a meaning system through which they selected and interpreted movement discourse, form, and tactics. As an IISM, VOTF shared tools from the cultural toolkit of the Catholic Church they sought to change. This chapter and the next reveal how this shared culture led the movement to both replicate and rescind the very institution it sought to reform.

Keywords: Voice of the Faithful; Catholicism; cultural code; discourse; tactics; cultural toolkit; culture; institution
