This work is made up of three sections: The first traces the symbolic of war in the Western tradition, to understand the horizon of Hernán Cortes's Letters of Relationship. The second proposes a reading against the grain of the texts that would reconfigure pre-Hispanic morality in monastic contexts. The third is a fragmentary history of the gaze: ways of seeing and thinking about otherness. The chain closes with Brother Bernardino de Sahagún and his writing project.
