Constitution and religiosity of/in the constitutional order of the national socialist empire

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this article, we will analyse the National Socialist regime as a politico-constitutional reality. We will do it from a new way of looking at politico-constitutional phenomena, interpreting them as registered in a religious grounding. It seeks to show that the National Socialist regime was characterised by having identified the political community – a racially interpreted and raised community to the Absolute – with an empirical historic personality regarded as eminently communitarian. It suggests that the regime constitutes a sui generis case, either in a context of regimes conventionally classified as “right-wing authoritarian and/or totalitarian” or in a larger context of contemporary politics.
