Ileto’s classic book on revolutionary movements in the Philippines was published in 1979 and it is now into its 8th printing. Although it was first published 33 years ago, the continued appeal of the book lies in its original approach to popular resistance movements in the Philippines.
Ileto’s approach was novel because it tried to show the meaning of the resistance movements from the point of the view of the participants themselves. This was a departure from the works of most Filipino scholars,

such a brilliant way of magnifying the voices of the marginalized people through prayers and other undocumented evidences.

an interesting work, novel for its time, in spite of its many limitations and mistaken conclusions (esp class analysis of Katipunan and blurring of distinctions of 19th century social movements).

A new lens of looking at how our revolution started. Not the usual Revolution led by the Elite Propagandists but how the likes of Hermano Pule and the different uprisings started. By using the known "text"- bastardized version of pasyon and how the masses got hold of their own situation.
A must read for us Filipinos who want to understand our rich tradition and question how victors wrote our history. :)

Focusing on what Ileto calls as the “history from below,” Pasyon and Revolution narrates the events of the Philippine Revolution (1840 - 1910) from the point of view of how it was richly understood by the masses. Given such task, Ileto centrally claims that it was in pasyon, the book that recounts the life and passion of Christ and universal history of mankind (from creation up to last judgment), where the common people were able to give sense to the series of events transpired during those time

This book gives new light to the religious nature of Philippine revolutions, and the religious personalities that led the movements in parallel with the life of Jesus in the Pasyon. Though depicting popular movements from 1840 to 1910, the book remains relevant up to this time. And it will be ever relevant until we have attained the paradise/kalayaan that our heroes have fought for - living in unity of loob, damay or true brotherhood, prosperity and love of God.

sobrang relate ako dito syempre. todo dala pa ako ng anting anting and prayer book sa school. XDD
medyo masakit nga lang sa bangs lalim ng "Filipino" pero sapat lang. It has something todo with Kaluluwa and ginhawa plus kaliwanagan and kalayaan. XDDD
