The early modern European experience in the Indies was marked by accommodation to local peoples and their cultures, and numerous failures. Nonetheless, this experience led to the consolidation of an enduring vision of cultural and political dominion. Through the lives of six Jesuit missionaries in early modern Brazil and India, this book seeks to understand how the messy realities of power in colonial spaces could give way to a grandiose, and self-fulfilling, imagination of empire.
