About Ernesto Cardenal
Ernesto Cardenal was a popular Catholic priest, politician and poet from Nicaragua. As a politician, he was appointed as his country's minister of culture in 1979. His most notable work, "The Gospel in Solentiname" was published in the mid 1970s. Today, he is considered one of Nicaragua’s most notable cultural figures.
He was a first cousin of famed Nicaraguan essayist and playwright Pablo Antonio Cuadra.
As a young man, he took part in a failed coup attempt against Nicaragua's 21st President Anastasio Garcia. The failed coup resulted in several deaths.
In 1984, Pope John Paul II sanctioned him because he assumed public office. FYI, Clerics are not allowed to meddle in politics or assume public office. This sanction lasted until 2019, when it was lifted by Pope Francis.
