There were Spaniards who protested the horrors of the conquest and worked to obtain justice for the Indians. Principal among them was Bartholome de Las Casas, a priest who had participated in the plunder of Cuba in 1511 but afterward suffered a crisis of conscience and began to denounce the conquest. The Christian mission in The New World was to convert the Indians, he argued, and “the means to effect this end are not to rob, to scandalize, to capture or destroy them, or to lay waste to their lands”. Centuries before the world recognized the concept of universal human rights, Las Casas proclaimed that “the entire human race is one.” His brave stand earned him a place as one of the towering moral figures in the history of the Americas.
