I've seen this one OP. It mostly concentrates on North American ideas dealing with religion. I was hoping to see more on the Spanish conquest and their methods of converting the natives....
The El Requerimiento.
Essentially, it gave justification for the conquistadors of the time to destroy and kill entire villages and native culture. Giving them absolution by god for the acts committed. And taking all profit from every resource found.
meaning "the requirement, or demand," was drafted in 1513 by Juan López de Palacios Rubios, a member of the Council of Castile, which advised King Ferdinand. The document was designed to be read in Spanish by Spanish explorers to American Indians, introducing them to Christian doctrine. Indians were not compelled to convert, but if they did not, they were immediately subject to Spanish invasion. The following English translation is published by Wikipedia.
