Viva la Religión, el Rey y la Nación: el paradigma religioso en el Perú del Trienio Liberal

The paper considers the religious politics of José de la Serna, political leader and ec-clesiastical vice-patrono of Peru (1820-24), considering the reorganisation of bishoprics and their jurisdictions, relations with the ecclesiastical hierarchy, the extraordinary tax burdens imposed on ecclesiastical assets and revenues, the provision of curacies and reform of the regular clergy. It looks at the ambivalent attitude towards the 1812 Constitution of the ec-clesiastical institution, which assumed either Liberal Catholicist or absolutist positions in favour of the alliance between throne and altar, subordination to the papacy and rejection of the independence movement which was associated with idolism ​
