La représentation antirévolutionnaire du monde : le cas espagnol (1808-1833)

Abstract : Napolean’s defeat of the Spanish monarchy in 1808 opened the political sphere to the entire Spanish population. The consequent revolution set off a counter-revolutionary reaction whose diversity was masked by the common front of the royalists (realistas). Opposition to the revolution was based on a vision of the present as a time of disease and corruption, and the future as a hoped-for return of an eternal world organized by God. A new enemy was created out of the multiple confusions between the French followers of Joseph Bonaparte, liberals, Jews and Moriscos. This counter-revolution led to a dead-end with the death of Ferdinand VII in 1833, but it established a long-lasting image of the public enemy in Spanish political culture.
