Noli Me Tangere (The Social Cancer) was first published in 1887 in Berlin Germany written in Spanish language. This novel is about the tragic love of Crisostomo Ibarra and Maria Clara whose love was broken by circumstances created by the corruption in the clergy and government during the Spanish Rule in the Philippines. This is a powerful novel that sparked the Spanish revolution in the Philippines more than a century ago.
