Due to the wars of independence and the civil war that followed, the office had remained empty for fourteen years. Herrera describes the political events in Peru and Rome that led to this situation, and the happiness of clergy and parishioners now that a new archbishop has been named.Benavente y Macoaga, (b. 1784), a native of Ayata, La Paz, remained archbishop until his death in 1839. Bartolomé Herrera (1808-1864), a native of Lima, died in Arequipa, where he had served as bishop since 1861. A noted orator, he was extremely active in the ecclesiastical and political realms: member of several assemblies beginning in 1849, part of Echenique's government in 1851, and plenipotenciary for Peru to the Vatican. Ricardo Mariátegui Oliva notes, "A él, a este gran peruano, se le debe como celoso guardián de la integridad territorial la defensa de la soberanía nacional frente a las pretensiones de EE.UU. sobre las Islas de Lobos; la implantación en Lima en 1853 de esa gran obra caritativa que se llama Conferencia de San Vicente de Paul; el establecimiento de las Religiosas del Sagrado Corazón, que . fundaron el primer colegio de niñas . y también el establecimiento de los primeros misioneros franciscanos ." When he delivered this sermon, Herrera was curate and vicar at Cacajay, a district some 300 km. north of Lima. *** René Moreno, Biblioteca Peruana, I, 525. Not in Palau.
