On December 12, 1794, Fray Servando preached a sermon in Mexico City claiming that the Indies had been converted by St Thomas long before the Spaniards arrived Because the Spanish cited the conversion of the heathen as the justification of their conquest of the New World, Servando s words were deemed subversive As a result, he was arrested by the Inquisition and exileOn December 12, 1794, Fray Servando preached a sermon in Mexico City claiming that the Indies had been converted by St Thomas long before the Spaniards arrived Because the Spanish cited the conversion of the heathen as the justification of their conquest of the New World, Servando s words were deemed subversive As a result, he was arrested by the Inquisition and exiled to Spain only to escape and spend 10 years traveling throughout Europe, as none other than a French priest So began the grand adventure of Fray Servando s life, and of this gripping memoir Here is an invitation hard for any reader to resist a glimpse of the European Age of Enlightenment through the eyes of a fugitive Mexican friar Fray Servando s account of Europe is clear sighted, hilarious and certainly not included in the travel literature of that era In this memoir, one sees a portrait of manners and morals that is a far cry from the civilized spirit that the Empire wanted to impose on its Colonies This book takes a look at history from an upside down perspective, asking this question who were the real savages, the colonizers themselves, or the supposed savages they were struggling to convert
