Summary: Signed by an anonymous Catholic in Popayán, this note denounces a previous publication that spoke of the evils of the Jesuits. Calls anti-Jesuit propaganda blasphemy. Notes that those who attempt to divide Catholic orders will be judged in hell.
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. President José Hilario López later expelled them again in 1850. The people of Popayán welcomed the Jesuits and wrote to support them when López first considered their expulsion. The largest Jesuit mission school was located in Popayán. Salcedo Martínez, Jorge Enrique. Las vicisitudes de los jesuitas en Colombia: hacia una historia de la Compañía de Jesús, 1844-1861.
