The object of this article is to examine the opinions that the ecclesiastic and civil cabildos de Antequera del Valle de Oaxaca faced before the imperial crisis of 1808: on one hand, suggesting its fidelity to the king, but on the other hand, also to settle with pending matters, in particular to support a regressive and radical politic that abolishes the sistema de intendencias in New Spain. In that way, the essay is an initial effort to relate the function and composition of the mentioned corporations as the ideological, religious, political and economic interests that displayed the work in the Antequera of the second half of the XVIII century and the first decade of the XIX century.
