El primer proceso inquisitorial en las Islas Filipinas

This paper presents te first legal proceedings that were sent from the Philippines to the Holy Office of the Inquisition in Mexico and dates back to 1577. They were opened bij an Augustinian friar in Cebu against two native women who despite being baptized, carried out pagan ceremonies and used hallucinating compounds. Then the proceedings passed over to Governor Francisco de Sande, who also charged a boy, victim of the women mentioned above, who might have died and resurrected. Afterwards the boy had told about a chair he had seen in hell prepared for the Governor himself. The Governor considered the matter as a personal offence and, indirectly, took advantage of it to attack the friars.
