Bartolome De Las Casas Narratives

Satisfactory Essays
I agree with what you say about de las Casas "narratives were only effective to an extent." I think it was admirable what he did do because the atrocities may have continued for much longer had he not spoke up. In speaking up, Casa was "accused of treason and even endured charges of heresy" (Bartolome De Las Casas 39). Casas went into seclusion for 7 years and then returned to political activity after which time, laws began to take effect to protect the Indians (39). I see de las Casas as an early activist and social reformer.
