Lecture – The Religious Question: Texas Colonization, Mexico and Church, 1770-1836 by Brian Stauffer
Religious dynamics played a part in shaping the fortunes of Texas starting in her days as the Mexican state of Coahuila y Tejas. Mexico’s rupture with Spain in 1821 raised new questions about the place of the powerful Catholic Church in an independent republic. This so-called “Religious Question” quickly came to occupy a dominant place in the public debate in Mexico, driving partisan rancor, diplomatic conflicts, and even armed insurrection. Texas, then a frontier outpost, was not immune to these conflicts, and was in some ways on the frontline as it was quickly filling with non-Catholic immigrants.
