Abstract

On 7 May 1940, the Portuguese government and the Holy See signed a Concordat and Missionary Accord to regulate the relations between Church and State in Portugal and its colonies. This was an event that most scholars see today as a turning point in Church–State relations, as well as the cradle of a deep alliance, if not fusion, between Church and State in the Third Portuguese Empire.
