Santa Clara, 1782–1783
This chapter examines the common-life reform at the Santa Clara Convent in Havana, Cuba, during the period from 1782 to 1783. The task of implementing the reforms was given to Manuel Estéves, a Franciscan vicar provincial in Havana. The chapter discusses the opposition to common-life reforms in other territories of the Bourbon Empire, the controversy over auditing the account books and the delays in the implementation of the reforms until the reestablishment of the communal regimen in 1783.
