The Ideo-Political Character of the Slovene People's Party from 1935 to the Beginning of the Second World War in 1941 in Slovenia
The paper presents the ideological and political shifting in the Slovene section of the Yugoslav Radical Union (YRU) in the latter part of the 1930's. The section assumed its original name 'the Slovene People's Party' (SPP) after the 1941 March putsch. It also indicates the influences behind the ideo-political orientation of the SPP which was closely connected with the Catholic movement. After Dr Anton Korošec joined the Stojadinović government in 1935, a network of the YRU organizations was set up in Dravska banovina, accompanied by the formation and renewal of numerous Roman Catholic organizations. Many of these became 'auxiliary forces' of Catholic Action which, inspired by Papal encyclicals, were supposed to pave the way for Catholic renewal and a corporative (organic) society. After the April breakdown, divisions arose in the SPP and, to an even greater extent, in the Catholic camp. Among the reasons were the authoritarianism of the Party and of the Catholic right wing, inadequate methods of the implementation of the Catholic renewal and ideas, the rejection of political pluralism as well as the seeking of protection of the Italian occupier after the collapse of the State in 1941.
