“The Biliran Religious Revolt (1765-1774)”
Dr. Rolando O. Borrinaga

Dr. Borrinaga will tackle a Filipino revolt that has yet to find its way into our national history textbooks—the decade-long Biliran Religious Revolt. He reconstructs its possible origin, its communal activities that can be inferred from documents, extant folklore, place-names, and monuments, its impact on the folk religious practices of the Leyte-Samar region, as well as its legacy for local millenarian movements, including the Pulahan movement during the early American period, over the next two centuries.
