Relación de los mártires de La Florida (Account of the Martyrs of La Florida) del P.F. Luis Jerónimo de Oré
(Universidad Católica del Perú, 2014)
Chang-Rodríguez’s introduction to this modernized edition of the text by Jerónimo de Oré (1554-1630), a Franciscan missionary born in Peru who lived in early Spanish La Florida and Cuba, showcases the shared history of North and South America and the impact of colonialism in the region. The text, a mixture of catechetical literature and geographic treatise, offers a unique vision of the contacts with the various ethnic groups that populated the area as well as of the collision of European powers trying to establish a foothold in North America. Oriented toward specialists and generalists, this annotated edition includes an introduction, a chronology, thirteen illustrations, a bibliography, and a CD-ROM of the original work. In Spanish. Raquel Chang-Rodríguez (Dist. Prof., City) serves on the doctoral faculty in Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian literatures and languages.
