Imperialism shaped a bit of the society of the Philippines. Some of the culture from Spain was brought into the Philippines when it was still a Spanish colony. Words, arts, and literature was influenced from the Spanish. "There are thousands of Spanish loanwords in most Filipino languages" (The Period of U.S. Influence, para. 7).
The archipelago of islands was even named in honor of the king of Spain, Philip II during the conquest of the country. "The Spanish later named the islands in honor of King Philip II, and an invasion under Miguel Lopez de Legaspi began in 1565" ("Philippines", para. 26).
Even Catholicism remains one of the most practiced religions in the Philippines currently. As I have already mentioned, the Spanish brought the Roman Catholic religion to the placed they took over. The people of the Philippines most likely have adapted this form of religion from the Spanish.
