© 2018 CSIC. The process of secularization in Catalonia between 1800 and 1867 is reflected in the reports that the bishops of the various dioceses sent to Rome. They pointed out the increasing globalization and that the evangelic values were moving away in revolutionary periods, such as the increased of the religious indifference in the cities, the corruption in the liberal press, ungodly books movements and the decrease of religious practices (Sabbath and Easter compliance, fasting and abstinence). Hence, new doctrines derived from liberalism, as the Protestantism and Socialism, appeared as the true enemies of the Church.
