Chapter Summary

As Chronicler for the Indies, Pedro de Valencia wrote various relaciones, which have published by Gaspar Morocho Gayo of the University of Len. This chapter analyses three critiques: Sobre el pergamino y láminas de Granada, his critique of the Parchment and Lead Books of Granada and his two treatises on witchcraft. The two treatises on witchcraft, Acerca de los quentos de las brujas y cosas tocantes a magia and Suma de las relaciones de Logroño illustrate clearly Valencias critical skills. The chapter also looks at arguments from his personal defence of Arias Montanos edition of the Pharaphrasis chaldaica in the Biblia regia. The final section of the chapter analyses another commission of Valencia: his design of a series of emblems to illustrate the political virtues.
