The Prison Notes
by Corneliu Zelea Codreanu and Julius Evola




Overview -
Corneliu Zelea Codreanu was the founder
 and leader of the Legion of St. Michael the
 Archangel, otherwise known as the Iron
Guard, in Romania between 1927 and 1938. 
While many of the revolutionary nationalist 
movements of the period are long forgotten, Codreanu's movement continues to be studied today. The reason is because Codreanu
 envisioned the Legion as being not simply 
a political movement, but rather a knightly
 order in which all members were suffused
 with the spirit of God, self-sacrifice and the essence of the Romanian people. This is no more evident than in his Prison Notes, which he kept after being imprisoned on false charges by the government. Although the judiciary was unwilling to sentence him to more than ten years' labour, Codreanu was 'shot while trying to escape' shortly after these notes were written. His body was then rendered unrecognisable with acid and clandestinely buried under seven tons of concrete to hide the crime. The Prison Notes are the testimony of a man who, while disappointed by the corruption and ill treatment he faces, remains strengthened by the power of his faith and commitment to a higher cause. Also included in this volume are translations of all of Julius Evola's essays on the subject of Codreanu. Evola, who met Codreanu in Bucharest shortly before his arrest, recognised in Codreanu a kindred spirit who saw profane politics only as a means toward a restoration of genuine hierarchy and aristocracy. We have also appended a series of rarely-seen photos of the Iron Guard and Codreanu to this volume to complete the record of a movement which has withstood and transcended the test of time.
