The Light of Liberty by Jim Richardson

Katipunan: Documents and Studies

Do you know what is this document? 

That was one of the documents related to the patriotic society of the Philippines, known as the Katipunan. 
It is really interesting to learn more and be updated about the existence of the said society. Some studies were being conducted about its  secrecy for 4 years, from 1892 until 1896 by some of our Filipino historians. 

One study conducted by Jim Richardson (in his book The Light of Liberty: Documents and Studies on the Katipunan, 1892-1897) , he stated that Katipunan, as early as January 1892, was already created. It was just then on July 7, 1892 that they formally declared its foundation after hearing the bad news that Rizal was being deported to Dapitan, Zamboanga del Norte.
