The Spiritual Conquest: Accomplished by the Religious of the Society of Jesus in the Provinces of Paraguay, Parana & Tape – Trade paperback
by C J McNaspy (Translator), Antonio R De Montoya, Antonio Ruiz De Montoya
Institute of Jesuit Sources
This primary source offers accounts of the greatest Christian missionaries the world will ever know. The seemingly insurmountable trials and difficulties are all conveyed in Montoya's words. Faith meets superstition in the reality of good and evil. Jesuit missionaries did God's work in the midst of colonial interests that mistreated the indigenous populations and the natives who knew the raw nature around them yet feared that nature because of deeply ingrained superstitions. Jesuits showed the world the unity of humble faith and reason to form Christian communities.
