Nicomedes Pastor Díaz

Nicomedes Pastor Díaz y Corbelle (Viveiro, Galicia, Spain, 15 September 1811 – Madrid, Spain, 22 March 1863) was a Spanish politician, journalist and author of the Romanticism and the Rexurdimento. He contributed to the renewal of the Galician language.

As a politician, Díaz served as Minister of State in 1856, during the reign of Queen Isabella II of Spain, in a cabinet headed by Leopoldo O'Donnell, 1st Duke of Tetuan (by then Count of Lucena).

He was both a Liberal and a Catholic, belonging to the left-wing of the Moderados. In 1863, as a member of the Liberal Union, he gave a speech on the necessity of reconciling Catholicism with Liberalism.[1]
