About this Item

1677 Thomas Gage Journal Caribbean Voyages MEXICO West Indies Spanish America Spanish Colonization Criticism RARE CONTENTS Thomas Gage (c. 1597 1656) was an English clergyman known for his voyages to the New World. His travels began at Mexico, where he started a missionary journey that would last for 12 years, getting to know the land and local costumes. In 1640, once back in England, he converted to Anglicanism and was sent to the Antilles by Cromwell in an expedition to assess the state of the Spanish settlements, where he stayed until death found him in Jamaica. This book describes the Caribbean voyage taken by Thomas Gage where he accompanied a military expedition. This work harshly criticizes the religious institutions and the Spanish colonization method.
