The confiscation of goods of the civil and religious communities and the Mexican Revolution of 1910

By Oscar Cruz Barney

Abstract

La propiedad de las comunidades indígenas en la Nueva España permitió, a través de un esquema de protección a la misma, que dichas poblaciones se desarrollasen con un grado de autonomía importante. Ese esquema de propiedad no se consideró compatible con la idea de igualdad constitucional en el siglo XIX, lo que llevó a los procesos de desamortización de bienes de comunidades civiles y religiosas. Dichas reformas legislativas se convirtieron en la semilla para la Revolución Mexicana de 1910.The lands of the indigenous communities of New Spain allowed them, through a specific legal structure, to have an important grade of autonomy. This property structure was considered not compatible with the idea of equality established by the Constitutions during the XIX century. That leads to a number of legal reforms to force this communities to sell their lands. Those legal reforms became the seeds of the Mexican Revolution of 1910
