I. Brief summary

Having finished his studies in The european countries, young Juan Crisóstomo Ibarra y Magsalin comes back for the Philippines after a 7-year absence. In his honor, Don Santiago delos Santos " Captain Tiago" children friend, put a get-together party, that was attended simply by friars and other prominent numbers. One of the guests, former North park curate Arena Dámaso Vardolagas belittled and slandered Ibarra. Ibarra cleaned off the insults and took no offense; he instead politely excused himself and left the party due to an allegedly important process. The next day, Ibarra visits María Clara, his betrothed, the gorgeous daughter of Captain Tiago and wealthy resident of Binondo. Their particular long-standing appreciate was obviously manifested in this meeting, and María Clara cannot support but reread the words her partner had written her before this individual went to The european countries. Before Ibarra left intended for San Diego, Lieutenant Guevara, a Civil Guard, reveals to him the incidents previous the fatality of his father, Put on Rafael Ibarra, a rich hacendero in the town. Relating to Guevara, Don Rafael was unjustly accused penalized a heretic, in addition to being a subversive — an allegation brought out by Dámaso because of Wear Rafael's nonparticipation in the Sacraments, such as Admission and Mass. Dámaso's bitterness against Ibarra's father can be aggravated by another occurrence when Don Rafael helped out on a fight among a taxes collector and a child preventing, and the former's death was blamed on him, though it was not deliberate. Suddenly, all those who believed ill of him appeared with further complaints. Having been imprisoned, and when the subject was practically settled, he died of sickness in jail.

Ibarra dismissed the priest's insolence, when the latter slandered the storage of his dead daddy, he was unable to restrain himself and lunged for Dámaso, willing to stab him for his impudence. Because of this, Dámaso excommunicated Ibarra, choosing this opportunity to persuade the already-hesitant Tiago to forbid his daughter from marrying Ibarra. The friar desired María Albumina to marry Linares, a Peninsular who just showed up from Italy. With the help of the Governor-General, Ibarra's excommunication was nullified plus the Archbishop decided to accept him as a member from the Church again. But , as fate might have it, some incident which Ibarra had heard nothing regarding was blamed on him, and he's wrongly imprisoned and jailed.
