Chapter Summary

This chapter summarizes what is already known about Benito Arias Montano in connection with the Duke of Alva. The six and a half years that Alva stayed in Flanders can be divided into three main periods: violent repression and the first war against the Orangists (15671568); truce (15691572); and the second war against the Orangists (15721573). From 1568, when Alva defeated the first revolt, to 1572, when the second revolt began, Montano collaborated closely with Alvas religious policy. In Plantin's letters we can follow the most relevant events of the Revolt of the Netherlands from the printer's particular point of view: the general rising and revolt of 1572 is described in detail in the letters from Plantin to Montano, who was in Rome at that time. They are written from Antwerp, where Perez was born and lived, and in Spanish, the family's mother tongue.

Keywords: Antwerp; Benito Arias Montano; Christopher Plantin; Orangists; Revolt of the Netherlands
