The Cristero Rebellion (1926-1929), the armed conflict that unfolded following the Mexican Revolution, was a major clash in the century's old struggle between the church and state. The civil strife encompassed a multitude of regions and social sectors of Mexico.  Prior to its ultimate resolution, epic battles were waged, challenging the emergent post-revolutionary state.  The Cristero Rebellion had  national and international repercussions and it still resonates in the historical memory of Mexican society.
