First edition of this report on the Spanish Empire of Peru, based on the writings of Bartolomeo de Las Casa and Garcilasso de la Vega This book pays tribute to Las Casas, and just like the work of the Dominican Spanish, denounces the cruelty and the abuses of the Spanish, crimes induced, according to the author, by religious fanaticism. Marmontel, prolific writer and protégé of Voltaire, wrote this work in response to the censorship that he had on the part of the Sorbonne, following the publication of a novel in 1767, "Bélissaire", in which a chapter advocated religious tolerance.
