The article analyzes the political and social imagination and political culture that prevailed in New Granada during the first half of the nineteenth century. The authors argue that to be the result of the combination of political practices of the Old Regime and the new liberal legal system during this period, the participation of citizens in public aff airs was done within a corporate and hierarchical order as a result of the community was founded on an imaginary and traditional order. Thus, the community was an important mechanism for regulating social behavior.
