Summary: Archbishop Herrán writes a scathing critique of the new laws passed by President Tomás C. de Mosquera that undermine the church, including abolishing tuición payments that churches depended on for financing.
Historical Notes: At the time of writing, President Tomás C. Mosquera ran an anticlerical campaign as part of his efforts to distance Colombia from its colonial past by severing the connections between church and state. Like many liberals of the time, he believed that Colombian education and government had to be secular to be truly liberal. His anti-clerical measures including cutting off church finances, expelling the Jesuits, and repressing some monasteries. Bushnell, David. The Making of Modern Colombia : A Nation in Spite of Itself.
