The issue was urgent in 1830s Spain. In the eighteenth century, the Catholic Church was the most powerful and closest ally of the state, but secular and anti-clerical forces grew steadily stronger in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. A Spiritist movement emerged and forged a political identity by this time throughout Spain. Popular forces struggled over such issues as Catholic reform, the secularization of cemeteries, and republican politics. The first instance of anti-clerical violence due to political conflict in the nineteenth century occurred during the First Spanish Civil War; during riots in Catalonia, 20 clergymen were killed by members of the liberal movement in retaliation for the Church's siding with absolutist supporters of Ferdinand VII. An interesting exemplar of Catalonian printing in the nineteenth century.
