It’s no mean feat to accomplish such a tome based from the seminal work of Fr. Felipe S. Redondo who in 1886 published the book, Breve Reseña de lo que fue y de lo que es la Diocesis de Cebu (A short account of what was and what is the Diocese of Cebu) or, better known as the Breve Reseña.
During the launching, I will also deliver a speech in behalf of the photographers of the book. Check out the full text that I prepared over at my estancabigas.com blog.
