The assumption of a 'Springtime of ecu Peoples', thoughts of a common republic and the attention for the eu measurement of the innovative occasions had a big effect at the rules of 1848. They have been mirrored in songs, pamphlets and political statements. besides the fact that, the meanings of 1848 - its histories and stories - swap over the years and based on varied political, neighborhood and nationwide contexts. The preliminary idealism used to be quickly changed by way of nationalist aggressiveness. In so much commemorations, the revolution seemed as a countrywide occasion in the nationwide histories of realms. this attitude in simple terms replaced in 1998, at the get together of its one hundred fifty years' anniversary, while historians, poiiticains and the general public rediscovered 1848 as a eu revolution, legitimising the rescue of the geographical region. 1848: a ecu Revolution? analyses the dichotomy among the foreign size in the rules of the revolution and the nationalisation of thoughts in its commemorations over the last a hundred and fifty years.

The expulsion of the Moriscos from Spain (1609-1614) represents a massive episode of ethnic, political and spiritual detoxing which affected approximately 300,000 people. The debatable degree was once legimitized through an ideology of non secular and political cohesion that served to shield the expulsion of all of them, crypto-Muslims and honest converts to Christianity alike.

The concept of Europe in the ideas of 1848 was not strong enough to establish an alternative ‘concert Européen’. Despite its idealism, Europe was not one of the revolution's priorities. Commemorations of 1848 in a national context How were memories of the revolution constructed and communicated? 84 As already explained with reference to Halbwachs, the content and meaning of memory depends not only on the facts remembered, but on the context of the commemorations, and on experiences made between the remembered facts and the act of commemoration.
