Abstract

Objective/Context: This article intends to show how and for what political purposes a transnational memory of the Ecuadorian Catholic leader Gabriel García Moreno was drawn up through dialogues between Ecuadorian and Catholic conservatives in France and the Vatican. Originality: It explores the construction of a transnational memory of García Moreno and his model of a Catholic Republic, and how this memory reinforced sub-national, national and transnational identities, instead of understanding memory as an exclusively national phenomenon. Methodology: French and Ecuadorian sources are compared, using analytical categories from current memory studies. Conclusions: The article reveals that a transnational memory of García Moreno and his political model took shape through the dialogue between various actors, in turn reinforcing multiple identities at different scales.
