The aim of this article is to highlight the little-known, but influential role Jesús Aguirre played in Spanish intellectual and cultural life throughout his career. His role as a communicator serves as a link, giving a sense of continuity through his different occupations as a priest, translator, editor, aristocrat, socialite and writer. Some of his most notable contributions include his role in fostering the Marxist-Christian dialogue, as well as the introduction and promotion in Spain of the thought of the Frankfurt School, which in turn had an impact on the intellectual coordinates which marked the Spanish Transition to democracy.
