Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the analysis of individuals who saw the Atlantic as their conduit to gaining wealth, whether financial, intellectual or religious. This book describes an Atlantic world where ideas, money, goods, and religion are exchanged often at the expense of New World peoples. Far from the familiar stories of European colonists dominating in a New World setting, the subjects in these biographies encountered the harsh realities of the Atlantic - difficult landscapes and environmental challenges, economic and political regulations, rigid religious doctrine, to name a few - while attempting to exploit the resources and peoples of the Americas.

Keywords: Atlantic world; European colonists
