    Filipino middle class –> Spanish and Chinese half-breeds or mestizosshared in the prosperity either as owners of lands which produced an export crop or as import-export merchants and middlemen

    • B. Rise of the Middle Class
    • - Filipino middle class sent their children to educational institutions.
    • - Spaniards labeled the Filipino middle class “bestiascargadas de oro” or “beasts loaded with gold”
    • - The middle class became increasingly critical of the superciliousness of the friar-curate, the importunities and excesses of the bureaucrats, both high and low, but they particularly resented the government’s deliberate policy of awarding colonial appointments only to full-blooded Spaniards, more particularly to those born in Spain.
    • - Nationalist feeling grew rapidly among the educated Filipinos and the repressive policy of the Spanish authorities served only to popularize the sentiment.


    c impact of european liberalism liberal

    C. Impact of European liberalism

    - Liberal bureaucrats and refugees along with the European and American liberals influenced Filipinos from the ranks of the middle class with their thought and orientation.

    • The appeal of the Enlightenment philosophers, notably John Locke (Two Treatises of Government) and Jean Jacques Rouseau (Le Contrat Social / The Social Contract), proved particularly strong to the educated Filipinos.
    • *The situation in France in 1789 closely paralleled the conditions prevailing in the Philippines in 1896.
    • ♦upper classes held a monopoly of political and administrative powers and refused to acknowledge the existence of a growing bourgeoisie
    • ♦the church owned vast tracts of land, controlled education and commerce, and exercised excessive power throughout Europe
    • Ilustrados– formed the vanguard of the Propaganda movement
    • - exposed the great spiritual crisis that engulfed the Filipinos and attempted to convince the Spanish authorities of the imperative need for far-reaching reforms to avert the outbreak of revolution


    d racial prejudice spaniards regarded

    D. Racial Prejudice

    - Spaniards regarded the Filipinos as belonging to the “inferior races”

    Indios – a name that carried the most unflattering and disparaging connotations to the native segment of Philippine society

    - The term Filipino, which referred to Spaniards born in the Philippines, was applied to the native only very much later.

    - Spaniards waged a campaign of open vilification against the Filipinos because of the increasing number of ilustrados in 19th century.

    Filipinos – described as “a machine that walks, eats, sleeps and exists”; “an incomplete whole, a confusion of sentiments, instincts, desires, energies, passions, colors that crowd each other without forming a single particular one”;”impossible to expose to curiosity and philosophical studies”

    - The constant insinuation at the racial and cultural inferiority of the Filipinos constrained Jose Rizal to prepare a new edition of Antonio de Morga’sSucesos de las Islas Filipinas which, with his copious annotations and criticisms, debunked the allegations of the Spaniards that the Filipinos were savages and had no culture before the advent of the conquerors.

    Filipinos – began to regard Western culture as a unifying factor

    - they realized that they were a race apart from the Spanish colonizers


    e secularization controversy council of trent

    E. Secularization Controversy

    Council of Trent (1545-1563) – the secular priests would be appointed to administer the new parishes

    Pope Pius V – issued in 1567, upon the request of King Philip II, the ExponiNobis, an apostolic brief that allowed regulars to serve as parish priests without diocesan authorization and exempted them from the bishop’s authority and jurisdiction

    • - The appointment of regular priests to Philippine parishes brought them into conflict with the archbishop and bishops.
    • Bishops – maintained that they were responsible for the proper administration of parishes
    • - they should be given the power and authority over the friar curate or curaparroco
    • Curaparroco– invoked the papal brief as exempting them from diocesan visitation and argued that they were subject only to the rules and regulations and the superiors of their respective religious communities
    • Archbishop Basiliio Santa Justa– accepted the resignation of the regular priests and appointed secular priests to the vacated parishes
    • - his campaign was sanctioned by the royal decree promulgated on November 9, 1774 ordering the secularization of the parishes (or the turnover of parishes administered by friar curates to the seculars)


    the unpreparedness of the native secular clergy

    The unpreparedness of the native secular clergy and the organized opposition of the friars to secularization prompted the passage of another royal decree in 1776 which virtually suspended the secularization of parishes.tye decree restored the parishes to the friar curates but required visitation which could be made either by the bishop or by the superior of the religious order to which the friar curates belonged. The decree, moreover, enjoined the church authorities to prepare for eventual secularization by training a competent native clergy in the Philippines.

    *Policy of despoliation or desecularization

    -A decree enacted in 1826 deprived many secular priests of parishes which they had held for nearly fifty years. Another decree in 1849 gave seven curacies in Cavite, which were administered by the secular clergy, to the friars.

    -The return of the Jesuits in 1859 was also made to justify the policy of despoliation.

    • The Curacy of Antipolo – “pearl of the Philippine curacies”
    • (When the parish priest of Antipolo died in 1862, Father Pedro Pelaez, as ecclesiastical governor of the archdiocese of Manila, appointed Francisco Campmass, a Filipino secular priest, to succeed him. The Recollects protested the appointment on the ground that they had a right to the parish, which was in the archbishopric of Manila, by virtue of the decree in 1861. In the dispute, the Filipino secular clergy lost and the Recollects gained the curacy.)
    • The Parish of San Rafael, Bulakan– became vacant in 1869
    • -the government cancelled the competitive examination for which seventeen Filipino priests had qualified because the Recollects claimed that this curacy should be given to them


    f liberal regime of carlos maria de la torre 1869

    F. Liberal Regime of Carlos Maria de la Torre (1869-1871)

    Carlos Maria de la Torre – most liberal and most loved governor-general of the Philippines

    -he dismissed his bodyguards and walked about the city in mufti, mingling with the natives and mestizos

    -he entertained the Filipinos in receptions in his official residence

    -encouraged freedom of speech and abolished censorship of the press, abolished flogging and substituted imprisonment as punishment for desertion among native soldiers and proved his benevolence by subduing an agrarian uprisisng and pardoning the rebels

    • Rafael de Izquierdo (1871-1873)
    • -he announced upon his arrival that he would rule “with a crucifix in one hand and a sword in the other”
    • -ruled with an iron hand and adopted terroristic measures
    • -reversed the liberal policies of de la Torre
    • -he repealed the exemption from the tribute and forced labor that the Filipinos had been enjoying (disgruntled Filipino workers at the Cavite arsenal mutinied in protest against this unreasonable decree)


    g cavite mutiny and the execution of gomburza

    G. Cavite Mutiny and the Execution of GomBurZa

    January 20, 1872 – a group of native artillery men, marines, soldiers and workers in the arsenal of Cavite led by a Sergeant La Madrid seized the nearby Fort of San Felipe

    (Izquierdo’s unwarranted abolition of their privileges caused the mutiny.)

    ♦The friars saw the Cavite mutiny as a conspiracy existed to overthrow Spanish sovereignty and establish a Filipino independent republic. In their view, the real perpetrators of the conspiracy were the Filipino priests who were actively supported by Filipino ilustrados and businessmen.

    • ♦On January 21, Izquierdo ordered the arrest of Fathers Jose Burgos, Mariano Gomez, Jacinto Zamora and other prominent native clerics, lawyers and merchants like Joaquin Pardo de Tavers, Antonio Regidor, Jose and PioBAsa, Pedro Dandan, GalicanoApacible, Mariano Sevilla and Vicente del Rosario. At the instigation of the friars, the GomBurZa were accused as leaders of the conspiracy, tried in a mock trial which did not give them any chance to defend themselves and publicly garroted on February 17, 1872.


    archbishop meliton martinez did not believe that

    ♦Archbishop Meliton Martinez did not believe that the three priests were guilty. He refused to unfrock them as requested by Governor Izquierdo. Instead, as one last salute to the martyred clerics. He ordered the tolling of bells when the three were executed.

    ♦Jose Rizal dedicated his second novel, El Filibusterismo, to the memory of the three clerics.

    ♦EdmiundPlanchut (French writer) summed up the impact of the execution of the three priests on the future development of nationalism among the Filipino people:

    These means that the convictions of Creoles, mestizos and natives were a very greet mistake. Up to then, different Philippine races had lived in distrust of one another; but in their common fate they learned the solidarity of their interests. Future generations will be able to say that the old differences must completely disappear so that they can be one in accord and someday ably fight the common enemy ---- that is, the colonial masters.
