DID SAINT JAMES OF COMPOSTELA HELP FRANCO’S NATIONALISTS WIN THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR?

Saturday 26 October: 5:00pm - 6:00pm

Anglia Ruskin University, Lord Ashcroft Building - LAB107, East Road, CB1 1PT

The legend of Santiago de Compostela dates from the tenth century. Over the centuries it was exploited in the formation of the Spanish nation, the re-conquest of Spain from the Moors and the creation of the Spanish empire. Spanish conservatives continued to claim the saint as their inspiration up to modern times, including in the Francoist victory of the Civil War and beyond. Dr Tony Morgan, ARU, examines the history of the legend, and how it resonates today and sets the Camino de Santiago into its historic context.
