Chapter Summary

Antnio Vieira s major biographer, J. L. de Azevedo, described the Clavis prophetarum as part of the last period of Vieiras life, one during which Vieira is normally described as beaten. The division of the Clavis prophetarum into three books appears more similar to the copy that was given to Casnedi to be examined while answering the Roman Inquisition remarks through order of the General Inquisitor, the Cardinal D. Nuno da Cunha. The partial edition of the Clavis prophetarum by H. Cidade is a little more complete than the one used by J. L. de Azevedo, and it was not cited by the Casnedi translator from Bahia. Vieira s argument concerns the need to resume the Ancient Law for the fulfillment of the vision of Ezekiel. The conquest of foreign people through faith happened little by little and would have lasted for several centuries, says Vieira.
