Synopsis

Horacio de la Costa was a historian, a writer, and a priest. He became the first Filipino Superior of the Jesuit Province in the Philippines at a time when the Filipinization of religious orders was intensely contested.

He lived through the Japanese occupation, helping those who had either evaded or escaped the Japanese forces. For these actions, he was arrested and imprisoned in Fort Santiago, but was awarded the Medal of Freedom in 1946 by the US government.

In 1982, the National Historical Institute unveiled a historical marker in his hometown of Mauban.
