This paper studies the impact of the Spanish constitution of 1812 on Russian liberals in general and on the Decembrist movement specifically. It concludes that the constitution mainly exerted influence on the Decembrists by confirming their belief that liberty and constitutions were expressions of "the spirit of the time." It proved to them that liberal reforms were possible in Russia as well.
