Summary: Manuel de J. Quijano here advocates for the abolition of institutions such as patronato where the state and the Catholic Church are, according to him, amalgamated. Instead he proposes a separation of state and religion and suggests that freedom of religion and a secular government in Nueva Granada offer the best options.
Historical Notes: After Independence, Liberal and Conservative governments followed the principle of patronato, which argued that the church should be subordinate to the laws of the nation state but the state should have responsibilities, often economic, to the church. However, depending on the degree of radicalism of the party leader, conservative governments generally tended to favor a privileged position for the Catholic Church.

Donor Notes: An advocate of tolerance for all religions, and for a free Church in a free state, Quijano wanted an end to the Patronato. - J.L.H.
