republicans come from a tradition which up to recent times advocated a military and political solution. nationalists favour the political method only. both aspire to a united Ireland. republicans would also be more radical in economic theory etc than most nationalists. in present terms the differences are largely historical and social.

What are the main differences between the beliefs of the Republicans-Nationalists and the Loyalists-Unionists?

Mainly the Republicans/Nationalists want a united Ireland of the complete 32 counties, controlled in Ireland and full recognition of this. The Loyalists/Unionists want the 6 counties composing Northern Ireland to remain part of the United Kingdom controlled by Britain. This isn't by a far stretch much detail but it's the main difference that comes to mind if you were to ask an Irish person. I agree entirely with Brian's answer, above. a general rule of thumb,99% of Nationalists are of Catholic background, while 99% of Unionists are of Protestant background.(What the technical differences are between these two theologies are, you'll have two ask someone who cares). A further angle on the differences may be argued that the Nationalists are holding an argument based on civil liberty and self determination, while the Unionists are anti Catholic. But you'll never get agreement on this one...far too biased.

Who was the Spanish Civil War between?

Spanish Civil WarIt was between the Popular Front and the Nationalists. The republicans, who were in power at the time, retaliated to a military uprising in 1936, which started the war. The Nationalists then sided with the Army. The Nationalists and the Popular Front were both coalitions of different political groups who sided with either the left or right wings for a beneficial outcome should they win the war. The republicans were the most powerful group in the Popular Front as they were communist and so received aid from the USSR. the Nationalists were also a coalition as they were fascist, they received a lot of help from Hitler ans Mussolini (or Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy).
