This was an excellent book not only because it contained historical information about my ancestor, Miguel de Quintana, but because that time period was very extreme in their views and anyone who opposed it was taken to task for it. My ancestor, Miguel de Quintana, was way ahead of his time in how he thought about the Church. He wrote beautiful prayers and poetry that are very essential to the early Church. I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in the details of what he endured during the Inquisition and what the outcome caused his life to be changed forever. I am very proud to have come from such a man. I, myself, come from a generation that no longer can read that kind of Spanish so I am very happy that someone translated his writings. One must be aware though, that some things are lost in translation.

Francisco Lomeli and Clark Colahan have made a major contribution to the colonial history and literature of Hispanic New Mexico in this book about Miguel de Quintana's life and writings. I am amazed that Quintana's writings were discovered in the archives of the Inquisition in Mexico City. I appreciated the contextual analysis of Quintana's thoughts expressed in his poetry. Readers of English will appreciate having his writings available for the first time in English. My profound "gracias" to Professors Lomeli and Colahan.
