This chapter analyzes the series of public issues that allied and divided the mendicant orders in New Spain. These issues include Bishop of Puebla Juan de Palafox y Mendoza's campaigns against regular orders, celebrations of Mary's Immaculate Conception, and the foundations of rival convents. This chapter explains that the disputes and intense public debates coincided with the orders' institutional vigor during the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.
