One Remarkable Priest

Much of what we know about the Inca civilization is all due to the writing of one remarkable Spanish priest named Bernabé Cobo, who arrived in Peru in 1599. He visited the former Inca capital, Cuzco, in 1609 and spent the rest of his life writing a 47 volume "History of the New World," which he completed in 1653. The University of Texas and translator Roland Hamilton have preserved Father Cobo's writing on Inca religion and culture, and made it available to English speakers.
