'This book should naturally prove of greatest interest to historians of colonial Central America and historians of missions, for whom it should prove quite useful, [...] even enlightening owing to its wealth of details, and its firm anchoring in primary sources. Historians of the Catholic Reformation, too, might want to dive into this rich collection...' Carlos M.N. Eire, Church History, 1999.
