Overview

Marketplace Product

This is a short history of the age of exploration and the conquest of the Americas told through the experience of Bartolome de las Casas, a Dominican friar who fervently defended the American Indians, and the single most important figure of the period after Columbus.



Explores the period known as the Encounter, which was characterized by intensive conflict between Europeans and the people of the Americas following Columbus?s voyages

Argues that Las Casas, ?protector of Indians,’ was primarily motivated by Scripture in his crusade for justice and equality for American Indians

Draws on the 14 volume Complete Works of Las Casas as a window into his mind and actions

Encourages students to understand history through the viewpoint of individuals living it
