Von den Philippinen: Ansichten von Ilo-Ilo.


Four views of Iloilo City on the Philippine island of Panay. 1. The Imperial German Vice Consulate.2. Street in Iloilo.3. Inner port of Iloilo. 4. Plaza Alfonso XII. and southern part of the city of Iloilo with a view of the island of Guimaras.From the 7th to the 13th centuries, the thalassocracies of Srivijaya and later Majapahit influenced parts of the Philippines. The smallest unit to be managed in a settlement was the Barangay, originally a related group that was headed by a Datu. However, the social structure of the Philippines varied from region to region. The box-like system of the Tagalog knew the aristocratic Maginoo, from which Datus, Rajas and Lakans were recruited. When the Spaniards claimed the Philippines as their colony in 1565 and thus incorporated it into New Spain, Islam was not yet deeply rooted, so it was not difficult for them to convert the Muslim population to Christianity. In addition, the Christianization of the Philippines was largely carried out peacefully, among other things, animistic practices were largely tolerated, some of which have survived to this day. Buddhism, which was probably the predominant religion in the Philippines alongside Islam in the 16th century, soon became practiced only by the Chinese minority. Given their defeat against the Spaniards in 1571, the Rajahs of Manila, Rajah Sulayman, Rajah Lakandula and Rajah Matanda converted to Catholicism. For this they were allowed to keep some privileges and were integrated into the colonial system of rule. Through the extensive integration of the native chiefs into the colonial system of rule, the social strata of the principalía came into being, which, as intermediaries and beneficiaries of the colonial system, consolidated it over centuries.
