NOLI ME TANGERE
CONTROVERSY
Reported by
Achmad Simban
Why?
Friars and Rizal’s enemies were fearless and continue to persecute(punish) Rizal for writing a book that contains
“subversive”
ideas against the church and the Spanish Government.
subversive – a systematic attempt to overthrow or undermine a government or political system by persons working secretly from within
DON. Jose Taviel de Andrade
The assigned bodyguard to Jose Rizal, a young Spanish Lieutenant.
Noli wanted to be Banned
Friars were powerful and the Noli was brought to scrutiny (
inspection
) by the
Archbishop of Manila, Msgr. Pedro Payo
who later sent it to
Fr. Rector Gregorio Echavarria
of the UST for examination.
The report was finally handed over to the
Gov. Gen. Emilio Terrero
. It stated that the novel was
HERETICAL
,
IMPIOUS
, and
SCANDALOUS
.
The governor was clever enough to know how bias the Dominican friars can be, so he sent it to the Permanent Commission of Censorship which was consist of Priest and Laymen.
The report of the Commission was drafted by its head, Agustinian Cura of Tondo, Fr. Salvador Font.
Based on their assessment was, the novel contained subversive ideas against the church and Spain and recommend for its banning and its circulation in the Islands.

The move for banning becomes ineffective hence it only creates a boomerang effect on them.
ANTI
Archbishop of Manila, Msgr. Pedro Payo
The novel was studied at the University of the Sto. Tomas upon the order of the Rector of UST, Fr. Domingo Echevarria.

The result was of the UST study certified that the Noli Me Tangere was indeed an anti-Church and anti-Spain, and was recommended for banning.
Salvador Font – who headed the
Permanent Commission of Censorship,
filed the report to the government that the Noli is an injurious to the interest of the colonial government and the Catholic clergy and must be immediately banned.
Fr. Jose Rodriguez who published the pamphlet entitled “
Caiingat Cayo
”, as a reaction to Noli.
Vicente Barrantes a Spanish writer, who openly criticized the novel in the Spanish newspaper La España Moderna.
Wenceslao Retana who wrote articles defending Spanish colonial rule in the Philippines.
Camilo de Polavieja Governor
- General of the Philippines (1896-1897). He oversaw the trial and execution of Jose Rizal.
Eulogio Despujol Governor-General of the Philippines (1891-1893) He ordered the exile of Rizal to Dapitan.
Rizal Allies
PRO
Marcelo H. Del Pilar
– using his penname Dolores Manapat, He published a pamphlet entitled “
Ciigat Cayo
” as an answer to Fr. Rodriguez’s “
Caiingat Cayo
”.
Fr. Francisco Paula De Sanchez
Olimpia Dies
While chaos was surrounding his novel, Rizal felt devastated by the untimely death of his sister, Olimpia. She died due to a lingering illness.
The Agrarian Problem
The Dominicans have continually increased the rentals paid by the tenants even though no agrarian support was ever obtained from them that may justify this move.
Rizal shared such problems with the friar estates to Gov. Terrero during his conversation with him in Malacañang. Given that it was also the problem encountered by the farmers in Noli Me Tangere, the government became obligated to respond and determined whether these allegations involving land taxes and tenant relations conflicts were truly being commited.
Though an investigation was conducted, it disappointed Rizal to see that nothing really turned out from it. He realized that this only worsened the problem. The hacienda managers would soon eventually retaliate.
His life was now in jeopardy that his friends and family feared for his safety. Rizal had no other choice but to leave the country again and continue his fight abroad. At first, he hesitated to leave, but when he realized that the life of his family may also be in jeopardy, he thought otherwise. Thus, for the second time, he was about to leave his country again.
