This chapter examines the ways that Antioqueño beliefs and religious attitudes provided integration and cohesion among the social classes. It discusses that the structure of society was far from egalitarian, but religion worked to shorten social distances rather than to accentuate them. It also examines several ways of public expressions of faith. It explains that the religiosity of the people in Antioquia is confirmed by testimonies of a varied nature: from all sorts of people in the said region as well as from other Colombians and foreigners; from Liberals and Conservatives alike; from official sources, and from more personal and disinterested accounts, such as diaries, memoirs, and autobiographies, as well as travel journals, family correspondence, and costumbrista literature.

Keywords:   belief, religious attitudes, social class, societal structure, religion, religiosity, costumbrista literature
