How does the congress of the sovereign republic of Colombia deal with the traditional right of the patronato real

ead the primary sources #66 “Church and State in the Sovereign Republics of Spanish America” p 154-159, in Penyak and Petry’s A Documentary History PART IX, CHURCH AND STATE IN THE NEW AMERICAS (see PDF).
How does the congress of the sovereign republic of Colombia deal with the traditional right of the patronato real (royal patronage) by which the Spanish Crown had appointed all the archbishops and bishops of the colony? What was the position of the church in the new republic under this legislation?
Why may the oath required of all Venezuelan bishops appointed by the pope after 1841 be considered a “moderate” solution to the state-church problem, that problem in this case being which institution, church or state, was superior and answerable only to God?
Similarly, article 10 of the Chilean constitution of 1925 may be considered a “moderate” solution to problems growing out of the traditional prerogatives of the Church in Spanish America. Why? What prerogatives of the church are recognized, denied, or modified?
The 1914 Carranza and Villa accord and the Villa telegraph are clear examples of this hostility toward the Mexican Catholic Church. How do the principles listed in the 1925 circular of the “National Catholic” Church of Mexico illustrate the depth of the revolutionaries’ disdain for the historic “Roman Catholic” Church in Mexico? How do the provisions of articles 24 and 27 of the 1917 Mexican Constitution (an aggressively updated version of La Reforma of the nineteenth century) respond to the historic position that the Catholic Church held in New Spain?
Give a summary of the content: who? what? when? where? (20%)
Give your critical (and personal) reaction to the content (20%).
Discuss the question prompts above. Back up your observations with examples (20%).

What aspects of gender and patriarchy

MUST BE ABLE TO MEET DEADLINE Watch the Youtube film “Yo, la Peor de Todas” (I, the worst of all, 1990) and read the primary source documents from Penyak, #50 A Unique Holy Woman from Seventeenth-Century New Spain. Characterize her writing in part 1. Would a consideration of René Descartes’ Discourse on Method (1637) help to place Sor Juana in mainstream European intellectual concerns of the seventeenth century? Evaluate her rationale for the reading program she delineates in part 2. What does she endeavor to establish in part 3? Do the sentiments expressed there suggest why this woman had no choice but to enter a convent? How do the concerns expressed in her Reply contribute to an understanding of the vibrancy of the Christian humanist tradition which was always a part, sometimes controversial, of Catholic Christianity? Post a response to Discussion 6 – Yo, La Peor de Todas (1991) of 300 words (80% credit) Give a summary of the movie: who? what? when? where? (20%) Give your critical (and personal) reaction to the film (20%). Discuss what aspects of Catholicism in Latin America are illustrated by the movie? What aspects of gender and patriarchy?

If you were asked to give your own overview of the “big picture” of scripture, what would your account look like?

Do you agree with Newbigin’s assertion above that “the way we understand human life depends on what conception we have of the human story”?Why or why not?
Do you understand your own life story as a part of some larger story or stories that give it meaning? If so, what are these stories and in what specific ways do they shape and influence your own story?
How might the stories of faithful Christians across the centuries (such as the story of The Forty Martyrs of Sebaste recounted above) inform our own stories and our own understandings of what it means to be a follower of Jesus?
The psalms for today, the passage from Acts, and the Apostles’ Creed all recall some of the important parts of the “big picture” of scripture. If you were asked to give your own overview of the “big picture” of scripture, what would your account look like? How would it be similar to or different from these biblical and historical accounts?

In what ways do you see more clearly both its importance for human life and the difficulties of living it out in daily life?

1. All of us probably have a tendency to view the world in such a way that we are the center of the universe (or at least, “our” universe). While this is arguably a common human tendency, are there particular aspects of contemporary society that encourage and reward this posture? Or asked another way, in what ways do contemporary cultures encourage us to be self-centered rather than humble?
2. Chittister offers us a rather robust account of Christian humility. As you read her chapter, what lessons about humility and its place in the Christian life did you learn? What connections do you see with the scripture passages for today?
3. One form of humility is what we might call “intellectual” humility. In the short video above, “The Joy of Being Wrong,” what did you learn about yourself when it comes to the challenges of nurturing intellectual humility? In what ways do you see more clearly both its importance for human life and the difficulties of living it out in daily life?
