SOLIS SOSA, Iván. The Christ of Uxmal: History, Celebration and Conflict in a Patron's Feast Pú'uk. Estud. cult. maya [online]. 2013, vol.41, pp.129-155. ISSN 0185-2574.

Confrontations amongst members from the Socialista del Sureste and Liberal parties were recurrent during the Mexican Revolution in Yucatan. Numerous towns, encouraged by the former political party, defied the elite class of their towns. In Muna, situated to the south of Yucatán state, the Christ of Uxmal was celebrated annually during May. In 1919, however, there was a strong opposition to this patronage festival between the two aforementioned segments of the population. Although the conflict had a religious hint, it was rather motivated by political, ethnic and classist issues in an attempt to reinstate Mayans countrymen to their town. The magnitude of these outcomes set a precedent in the local and regional history for the forthcoming decades which is still prevalent these days.

Palabras llave : Cristo de Uxmal; socialists and liberals; saint patron's holiday; interethnic conflict.
