About this Item

A translation into Neo-Latin of Rela?a? abbreviada da republica, que os religiosos Jesuitas . . . estabelecera? nos dominios ultramarinos [etc.] published at Lisbon in 1757, and written by or at the instance of Minister Pombal. It was part of this minister's platform to reduce the power of the Jesuits and to remove them from the Portuguese empire; and without a doubt the immediate impetus for this work was the War of the Seven Reductions (i.e, the Guarani War) that pitted the combined forces of Spain and Portugal against the Guarani living in seven Jesuit reductions in Paraguay. This was, both in the Portuguese and the Latin versions, circulated as a propaganda tool in the diplomatic war that Pombal waged in Europe against the Society of Jesus. Provenance: Ex-Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana, with its stamp showing this a deaccessioned duplicate.
