Desafuero eclesiástico, desamortización y tolerancia de cultos: una aproximación comparativa a las reformas liberales mexicana y colombiana de mediados del siglo XIX
This article explores from a comparative perspective three important aspects in the liberal reforms that took place in mid 19th century Mexico and New Granada. These aspects are loss of ecclesiatical rights, land disentailment, and religious tolerance. It highlights the manner in which these topics were engaged by legislators in each country, pointing towards differences and similarities, and emphasizing the possible influence of one case upon the other. For example, the discussion on religious tolerance in Mexico in 1857 had as a reference what was discussed and approved in New Grana- da in 1853, and land disentailment in the latter in 1861 reflects what had taken place years before in Mexico.
