Summary: An impassioned letter responding to the liberals’ questioning of the Catholic Church’s position in the country.
Historical Notes: The latter part of the nineteenth and early years of the twentieth century were a period of quest for definition in Colombia. The liberal and conservative parties negotiated, sometimes peacefully, sometimes not, their influence within society. Would Colombia be a "modern," liberal nation attuned to the rest of the world? or would it vindicate its Hispanic-Catholic past? This pamphlet is a source to study this process of self-definition that in times was at the center of the most cruent conflicts in Colombian history.
Donor Notes: A poignant response to the liberal attacks against the influence of the Catholic Church in Colombia. - J.L.H.
