Catholicism in Modern Spanish Narrative

Catholicism plays a fundamental imaginative-moral role in key texts of modern Spanish narrative. This power to shape new narrative structures and perspectives and to prompt texts to focus on ethical-religious issues of belief and social concern has not, however, been understood or paid attention by literary scholars. Scholars view Spanish fiction largely as a secular enterprise; and disconnect religion from issues of modernity. By the late 18th century faith begins to show signs of being in crisis. I examine the role that this continuing religious crisis played in creating the modern forms of imaginative writing in Spain.
