Season 1, Flagship Show, Episode 9: Spanish Civil War (Part 1): The Hapsburgs and The Bourbons

Charles A. Coulombe

Charles A. Coulombe

On this month's episode of the Flagship Show, one of our hosts recently returned to the United States from extended travel in Spain, and was fascinated with the culture and history of this former jewel in the crown of worldwide Catholicism. He wanted to do a series of shows talking about Catholic Spain's impact on the world.

This show is the first of a two-part series of Spain-themed shows.  We will discuss how we got to the Spanish Civil War by reviewing the Reconquista, the Spanish Golden Age, the defeat of the Armada, and the malaise that persisted until the early 20th century.

Join us and our guest Charles Coulombe, noted Catholic historian and author. Mr. Coulombe's most recent book is called, The Pope's Legion: The Multinational Fighting Force that Defended the Vatican.

This is Part 1 of a 2 part show series on the Spanish History.

Please note that while we are glad to have Mr. Coulombe for his historical knowledge, we must note to our viewers, that he was a guest solely for historical matters, and not for commentary on religion. We do not recommend Mr. Coulombe's other works outside of this context on True Restoration as his views do not necessarily represent the traditional teachings of the Catholic Church, and by extension, True Restoration and its team.
