PEREZ PEREZ, María Cristina. Representation, Manufacture, and Appropriation of Catholic Symbols by the Republican Order in the Central District of Gran Colombia (1819-1831). Secuencia [online]. 2021, n.110, e1815.  Epub June 04, 2021. ISSN 2395-8464.

This article describes the way a new political order was implemented in the Central District of Gran Colombia in the early decades of the 19th century, through the appropriation of viceregal celebrations, representations of the king, religious festivals, and images and prayers created in Nueva Granada. The research shows that for the republican political elite, recognition of the state should not be established by abolishing all the codes, conventions and emblems recognized in their society since the 16th century and instead should be used and appropriated with new meanings to instill loyalty to the new government. It therefore seeks to contribute to 19th century Colombian and Latin American historiography, which has been questioned by countless symbols of construction of the nascent republics but based on fundamental notions of cultural history such as representation, manufacture, and appropriation.

Keywords : Gran Colombia; XIX century; representation; manufacturing; appropriation.
