Filipino Heritage: The Making of a Nation Vol. 6: The Spanish Colonial Period (18th/19th Centuries) Roots of National Identity

Title: Filipino Heritage: The Making of a Nation Vol. 6: The Spanish Colonial Period (18th/19th Centuries) Roots of National Identity
Author: Alfredo Roces
Synopsis: This book is volume 6 of a 10 volume work published by Lahing Pilipino Publishing and edited by Alfredo Roces. By the late 18th and early 19th centuries, the Philippine colonial era exuded a graceful ambiance. Painting could lay claim to legitimate and distinct school, styled with the miniaturist’s light and delicate touch and profuse with details. Portraiture had come into its own, a departure from the religious subject matter of anonymous early painters. An academy of arts came into being. A Tagalog literature, using Roman alphabet in place of the indigenous script, flowered. The moro-moro became the popular entertainment; only at a much later phase was the zarzuela to intrude and challenge the moro-moro as a theatrical form. A religious folk theatre sinakulo thrived.
