History of Cortes, Bohol
« on: June 19, 2007, 06:16:02 PM »
Cortes is a town northeast of Tagbilaran City. They had already a form of government before the coming of the Spaniards.

Prominent barangays during that time were Malabago and Dayhangan. Malabago was later changed to Pamingwitan because of the way the people caught fish. It was during the construction of the church that barangays Pamingwitan and Dayhangan were welded together to become a new town and given a new name 'Cortes' derived from the Spanish 'Cortesimo', meaning most courteous.(the provincial government file)

Romans 10:9
"That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved."

The experience of Hernando Cortes, who started the sweeping conversions in the Americas is the inspiration of the Augustinian Recollects when they came in the small community of Malabago in  1772.

Such were so because Malabago used to be administered by the Jesuit missionaries who set from Loboc and who were uprooting the Tamblot held Camayaan. When Tamblot revolt as finally quelled, the people  adopted the Christian religion and abandoned the pagan religion that Tamblot, from nearby Tupas preached.

But the Jesuits could not sustain the operation of the visita in Camayaan, so they would have to abandon the community, for lack of manpower prevents them from answering to the converts' spiritual needs.

So the natives in Camayaan slid back to the old pagan religion.

Until they saw the Augustinian Recollects in 1770 that they noticed they culd be given back their newfound Christian faith.

The Recollects read this as sweeping conversion, they used the analogy of Cortes and then they named the town after him.

OMG, I miss my hometown so much. The last time I was home was in 2007.
