Summary: An elegy (in poetic verse) to the San Bartolomé cloisters, former home to the Jesuit College also called San Bartolomé.
Historical Notes: As in many other liberalizing nations of the 18th and 19th Century, the Jesuits had a tumultuous relationship with the Colombian government. The Jesuits were expelled under colonial rule in 1773, then brought back briefly in 1842 by the Conservative-led government after the War of the Supremes in order to educate indigenous peoples and restore moral order to society. They were later expelled again in 1850, before briefly being reintroduced in 1858. President T.C. de Mosquera expelled them yet again in 1861, as part of his anticlerical campaign.
