This book concludes with the words of Angel Valbuena Prat referring to the significance of Catholicism in Spanish literature: “One of the greatest achievements of the twentieth-century Spanish soul is awareness of its Catholicity....While the nineteenth century, essentially prone to mystification and sympathetic with any divisiveness, individualism or anarchy, had an evident attraction for the Protestant forms of religiosity, the new century, tending towards organization, a new classicism, hierarchy and unity, is profoundly characterized by the revalidation of Catholic thought and art....[N]ation and religiosity, Catholicism and empire, have fused into a fasces of unity.” Such sentiments, common in the early years of the Franco regime, drew inspiration from the prevailing Falangist mystique of nation and empire and from the nineteenth-century traditionalist scholar Marcelino Menendez Pelayo.
