Based on the rhetorical strategies of important Argentine nationalist figures, this project proposes some possible sources imbedded within the Argentine historio-cultural imagination that provided a fertile environment in which these ideologies could take root and flourish. The historical and cultural strains that arguably influenced the pervasiveness of anti-Semitism among some Catholic Argentines include the following: the inherited colonial tradition of Hispanidad, which admires the philosophy, theology, and politics of the Reconquista, the Inquisition, and the Counterreformation; 19th century caudillismo and the reimagination of the dictator Juan Manuel de Rosas; and integralist Catholicism, flavored with the philosophy of Neo-Scholastic Thomism.
