Item Description...
Overview
In this thought-provoking book, Luis Rivera argues that evangelical reasoning and symbolism were appropriated to justify the armed seizure of people and land in the New World and to validate the conversion, peaceful or forced, of the natives. He recaptures the sixteenth-century political debates--where priests and theologians are both voices of dissent against the Spanish military conquest and fervent defenders of it. Rivera contrasts "discovery" and conquest and examines the tragic outcome: demographic collapse--from the islands Columbus first sighted to the Inca empire in Peru.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A vaulable work on an important piece of history  Nov 22, 2008
This is an excellent exposition of the religious and political debates surrounding Spain's militaristic evangelism in the New World and will be valuable to anyone interested in the history of: the church, political thought, missions, anthropology, and not least of all, ethics. Rivera's tracing of the theological-ethical discussions of 16th century Spain is especially historically illuminating due to his heavy quoting of primary sources. Despite the depressing title, the inspiring protest movement of Bartolome de Las Casas figures quite prominently in Rivera's account.
