Resumen

GUILLEN VILLAFUERTE, José Javier. Cholera, the Catholic Church and Civic Government in Chiapas State, 1833-1835. Rev. pueblos front. digit. [online]. 2017, vol.12, n.24, pp.67-97. ISSN 1870-4115.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22201/cimsur.18704115e.2017.24.308.

In 1833, the Mexican Republic suffered the first cholera outbreak in its history. This article refers to the measures taken by the civic and religious authorities in Chiapas State in order to protect inhabitants of the region against the disease. It likewise aims to demonstrate how the different issues faced by both government -politics and finances- and the Church -social order- hindered their action during the time that the epidemic spread throughout the population in Chiapas State. Lastly, after a critique of the documents, the article refers to its probable demographic impact.

Palabras llave : epidemics; nineteenth century; parish records; indigenous people; demography.
