In consequence, the Catholic Church permeated the spiritual and material life of the area, giving the Catholics a social and cultural identity. This identity was reinforced through the numerous lay devotional societies of penitents so that the Catholics' existence could revolve almost entirely around Catholic institutions and organisations, reducing drastically the possibility of and the need for social contacts with the heretics in their midst.
