This article deals with the ecclesiastical changes in Santa Fe arisen from its political autonomy in 1815 up to the end of Rosas government and the successive constitutional organization of a federal nation State. The jurisdictional structure of the Catholic Church and the clergy numbers in late-colonial Santa Fe are analyzed in the first place. Secondly, this paper studies the effects of a new autonomous government on ecclesiastical hierarchy and its link with the promotion of José de Amenábar to the highest position in local Church. In the third place the relation between provincial treasury and ecclesiastical financial resources is examined. Finally the bounds of provincial Church autonomy are taken into account considering Buenos Aires jurisdictional and political primacy.
