Chapter Summary

Surviving documents in the Archivo General de Indias in Seville help to account for the contradictory information provided by Fray Trujillo and clarify the context in which the author of the Centinela contra Judíos became a missionary in Spain's most distant colony. In the late 1660s and early 1670s, the Franciscan province of San Gregorio in the Philippines sent some of its friars back to Spain to recruit Franciscans missionaries. Originally printed in 1674, the Centinela was reprinted a further twelve times with eight Spanish reprints and four Portuguese translations. In addition to this, a partial reprint of a poem in the Centinela appeared in Mexico in 1775. The Centinela was written in vernacular Spanish (Castilian) and in an accessible style because its intended readership was to be literate laymen as well as clergymen.
