This chapter examines a major development in the fourth and final extirpatory cycle in Central Mexico which extended from the 1720s into the early nineteenth century. These include the increase in native sorcery accusations in the Toluca Valley, the end of punitive experiment of the prison of idolaters in Oaxaca, and the growth of local factionalism in various Zapotec and Chinantec communities. This chapter also considers procedural conflict among competing jurisdiction involving dispute between the provisorato and the Inquisition and the confrontations between alcaldes mayores and the provisorato.
