The catch of gravely injured Papa Faustino Ablen, his resulting recuperation, trial for brigandage (robbery, kidnapping, coercion, and so forth.,) and his execution in August of 1907 crushed the spirit of the Dios-Dios Pulahanes as a noteworthy revolt. His main sub-boss, Felipe Ydos, Espiridion Rota, Afroniano Fernandez and other sub-boss were likewise hanged. Lesser officers were sentenced to long jail terms. Initiates got lesser disciplines.
Numerous Pulahan individuals from Leyte and Samar, to put some separation amongst themselves and their previous foes they had gone after, moved to Mindanao. They kept on living in little remote cooperatives and to hone their prophetically calamitous convictions of the “brilliant paradise” they’d found in Ablen’s blade handle.
Proceeding with government provocation brought about more clashes, for example, the 1924 Colorum Uprising in Surigao. To this year 2008, the impact of the Pulahanes is still found in Christian factions all through Mindanao.1.
Millenarianism flourished in the Philippines as a consequence of severe Spanish arrangements amid the frontier time frame. The Dios-Dios development was truly determined by a longing to profoundly change their general public. They anticipated the presence of the “immense city” they found in Ablen’s bolo handle, the revival of the dead, the triumph over their adversaries through their supernatural petitions and special necklaces. At first they just pulled back to their mountain withdraws and lived latently.
