Better than the pile: the press. The Padre Traggia and the Catholic winner (1809-1810)





This article, which begins with a presentation of the relationship between the press and the Church during the Spanish Enlightenment, reveals the journalistic trajectory of Friar Manuel de Santo Tomas (Traggia), and analyzes El Vencedor católico, a newspaper founded by the Carmelite in 1809. In the same way as the author, this weekly publication, printed in Seville during the Peninsular War, was the first journal "of piety and religion" published in Spain. The reader will find in the appendix a facsimile of this singular journal whose only collection found today is the one stored among the holdings of the Archivo General Militar de Madrid.
