Abstract :
Looks at the origins of the symbolic images of crusader and martyr in the Spanish Civil War. The language and iconography of martyrdom brought together, and depended on, ideas made familiar in a variety of right-wing discourses under the Second Republic. These were most apparent among politically mobilized right-wing youth as well as in a flourishing if embattled Catholic youth culture. Embedded within these groups was a defined sense of masculinity, reflected in part in the codes of manliness they adopted. Also apparent was an idea of the mission of youth, a firm sense of moral purpose, and more diffuse ideas of comradeship and historic destiny. The moral fervor embodied in these images played a crucial role in turning a rather grubby military coup into a glorious Spanish, Catholic, military and masculine crusade. Both Nationalist and Republican posters and paintings are presented within the context of this discussion. ;
