Return to object viewer Doctrina christiana, y catecismo para instruccion de los indios, y de las de mas personas, que han de ser enseñadas en nuestra sancta fé Creator Montt, Luis Acosta, José de Place Impresso ... en la Ciudad de los Reyes Publisher Por Antonio Ricardo primero impressor en estos reynos del Piru Date año de M.D.LXXXIIII años.  Notes Signatures: 2A⁸ A-I⁸ K¹² (2A1 verso, 2A8 verso blank)Although the title page and the table of contents indicate that the Confessionario was included within the Doctrina, this intention does not appear to have been carried out. The Confessionario para los curas de indios has its own title page, separate signatures and foliation, and the title page and colophon bear the date 1585. The "Provision Real" from the preliminaries of the Doctrina is repeated with typographical changes in the preliminaries of the Confessionario. In opposition Torres Saldamano ("autoridad en la materia" according to Medina) maintains that the two works were issued together. See: Enrique Torres Saldamano, Los antiguos jesuítas del Perú (Lima, 1882), p. 18Numerous errors in foliationErrata statement on leaf Backer-Sommervogel attributes this work to José de Acosta. Medina, however, argues that Acosta's role was primarily that of proof reader. Medina and Vargas Ugarte also note the participation of other Jesuits, members of other orders, and secular clergy in the preparation of this work. More specfically Vargas Ugarte maintains that Acosta drafted the Spanish text and that Fathers Bartolomé de Santiago and Blas Valera were the principal authors of the Quechua and Aymara versionIn Spanish, Quechua, and AymaraTitle page vignette (Jesuit trigram); initials, printer's devicesThe first book printed in South America Local notes John Carter Brown Library copy first of three items bound together, the other two of which are: Confessionario para los curas de Indios / Catholic Church.
