How did  Iberian (Spanish) Catholics understand salvation? How did this understanding affect their policies toward indigenous Americans? What different underlying assumptions about the nature of human life did Nahuas bring to the table?

As you formulate  your answer, refer directly to the readings “The Missionary Missionized,” “Inter Caetera,” and “Sublimus Dei.”  However, be sure to complete the other readings and lectures in order to develop the strongest possible answer.

Due to the brevity of the assignment, introduction and conclusion paragraphs are not needed. However, answers must be composed using complete sentences and paragraphs, usingclearly developed topic sentences.

Your response should assume that the reader is already familiar with the readings. That is, limit your summary of the readings to a few sentences and dedicate the majority of your time to analysis.

If you use quotations in your essay, keep them brief (no more than 20% of your answer). Quotations should be formatted in accordance with the following example:

According to Gill, initiation into the kachina cult “is the formal introduction into the religious life of the Hopi” (Gill,  66).

The Bull Inter Caetera (Alexander VI), May 4, 1493

From:

A papal bull is a type of letter or charter issued by the pope. In this excerpt, Pope Alexander VI addresses the Spanish monarchs, Ferdinand and Isabella.

. . . . Among other works well pleasing to the Divine Majesty . . . this assuredly ranks highest, that in our times especially the Catholic faith and the Christian religion be exalted and be everywhere increased and spread, that the health of souls be cared for and that barbarous nations be overthrown and brought to the faith itself. . . . [We recognize] that as true Catholic kings and princes . . . you not only eagerly desire but with every effort, zeal, and diligence, without regard to hardships, expenses, dangers, with the shedding even of your blood, are laboring to that end; . . . we therefore are rightly led, and hold it as our duty, to grant you . . . those things whereby . . . you may be enabled for the honor of God himself and the spread of the Christian rule to carry forward your holy and praiseworthy purpose so pleasing to immortal God. We have indeed learned that you . . . chose our beloved son, Christopher Columbus, . . . to make diligent quest for these remote and unknown mainlands and islands through the sea . . . and . . . with divine aid and with the utmost diligence sailing in the ocean sea, discovered certain very remote islands and even mainlands that hitherto had not been discovered by others; wherein dwell very many peoples living in peace, and, as reported, going unclothed, and not eating flesh. Moreover, . . . these very peoples. . . seem sufficiently disposed to embrace the Catholic faith and be trained in good morals. And it is hoped that, were they instructed, the name of the Savior, our Lord Jesus Christ, would easily be introduced into the said countries and islands . . . . In the islands and countries already discovered are found gold, spices, and very many other precious things of divers kinds and qualities. Wherefore, as becomes Catholic kings and princes, . . . you have purposed with the favor of divine clemency to bring under your sway the said mainlands and islands with their residents and inhabitants and to bring them to the Catholic faith. Hence, heartily commending in the Lord this your holy and praiseworthy purpose, . . . we exhort you very earnestly in the Lord . . . that inasmuch as with eager zeal for the true faith you design to equip and dispatch this expedition, you purpose also, as is your duty, to lead the peoples dwelling in those islands and countries to embrace the Christian religion . . . . And, in order that you may enter upon so great an undertaking with greater readiness. . . we, of our own accord . . . give, grant, and assign to you and your heirs and successors, kings of Castile and Leon, forever, together with all their dominions, cities, camps, places, and villages, and all rights, jurisdictions, and appurtenances, all islands and mainlands found and to be found, discovered and to be discovered towards the west and south, by drawing and establishing a line from the Arctic pole, namely the north, to the Antarctic pole, namely the south, no matter whether the said mainlands and islands are found and to be found in the direction of India or towards any other quarter, the said line to be distant one hundred leagues towards the west and south from any of the islands commonly known as the Azores and Cape Verde.
