Abstract

Throughout the 19th century the Spanish patronage normalised its intervention in increasingly large areas of the temporal government of the Church in the Spanish overseas territories. This process was seen by the bishops of these dioceses as an overstepping of the limits of patronage rights and, therefore, from the 1850s onward, they will multiply their denunciations against this “interference” by civil power and the limitations that the system imposed on the exercise of their episcopal faculties. This article proposes to project the reality of the Spanish patronage in the Spanish Antilles, based on the diachronic analysis of some of the main issues of friction, on which the debate between two models of the Church (regalist and ultramontane), and the attempts and mechanisms arbitrated by the bishops of Cuba and Puerto Rico and by pontifical justice to surpass an exceptional situation.
