Just so, what is the main reason why Gomburza were executed?
On 17 February 1872 in an attempt of the Spanish government and Frailocracia to instill fear among the Filipinos so that they may never commit such daring act again, the GOMBURZA were executed. This event was tragic but served as one of the moving forces that shaped Filipino nationalism.
Additionally, what is the significance of Gomburza? Gomburza, alternatively spelled GOMBURZA or GomBurZa, refers to three Filipino Catholic priests (Mariano Gómez, José Burgos, and Jacinto Zamora), who were executed on February 17, 1872 at Bagumbayan, Philippines by Spanish colonial authorities on charges of subversion arising from the 1872 Cavite mutiny.
Regarding this, what inspired Jose Rizal to write El Filibusterismo?
While in Germany, Rizal wrote the second half of Noli me Tangere from time-to-time starting February 21, 1887. After he read the novel Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe, he had an inspiration to write his own novel with the same topic–to expose Spanish colonial abuse in print.
Why is Gomburza innocent?
The innocence of the priests decided whether they were to live or die. During the time of Gomburza, the priests were virtually powerless after being accused and convicted of a crime they did not commit because they were under the whims of the all-powerful Spanish Empire.
