Antisemitic images after the First World War were most likely to occur in English Catholic discussions of modern capitalism and socialism, but were not limited to the pure economic and political aspects. Anxieties of a growing Jewish influence and of a parallel decline of English (Christian) culture harboured anti-Jewish sentiments in Catholic publications and organisations. Together with economic antisemitism, the Jewish-Bolshevik stereotype was the most common anti-Jewish remark. Antisemitism had become common and ubiquitous in Bavaria, while it was still seen as a radical form of Jew-hatred in other parts of Germany. Within the spectrum of conservatism, the antisemitism within the Centre Party and Bavarian People's Party (BVP) was neither as hostile nor as coherent as that of the conservative-right, the German National People's Party (DNVP) and those Catholics who joined or sympathised with the German nationalists.
