    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    After his death, Che Guevara became an idol and was even compared to Jesus Christ. Many images, poems, plays, and films bear witness to this remarkable process, which made studious use of Christian iconography. In this way, Che Guevara became a Christ figure for our times. In order to explain their real affinity, the author examines Jesus as a historical figure and illuminates parallels with Che.
