Published by: Editura Universităţii din Bucureşti
Keywords: Iron Guard; Corneliu Zelea Codreanu; Romanian Fascism; “new consensus” about fascism; anti-Semitism.
Summary/Abstract: The adaptation of the “new consensus” about fascism to Romanian Iron Guard has already given some brilliant results as far as political modelling is concerned. Time has come to investigate patiently the historical documents in order to evaluate the degree of consciousness of the contemporary people about the revolutionary project of the Romanian Fascism and about its practices which intended to replace traditional life in agrarian orthodox Romania by a new social life modelled in the legionary nests. As this new life is structured around the adoration of the charismatic personality of the “Captain” Corneliu Zelea Codreanu, his main text, For my legionaries, will be largely solicited for the passages corresponding to the early period of formation lasting from 1919 to 1927. Special attention will be devoted to the elements of breaking off with his political godfather in anti-Semitism, A. C. Cuza. Passage from traditional religious minded, but also socio-economic post-war anti-Semitism to the younger generation‟s political religion of national renewal between 1919 and 1927 is the main purpose of this paper.
