This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on convent reforms in Havana, Cuba, carried out under the auspices of the Spanish Bourbon state and the Catholic Church during the reigns of Charles III during the period from 1761 to 1808. The results indicate that female cloisters of Havana provide excellent case studies of the wide-reaching effects of the Bourbon Reform program. The findings also suggest that the convent reform had its roots in both the Council of Trent and the European Enlightenment and it was intended to enforce spiritual, economic, and social ideals.
