Columbus compiled the Libro in 1501-1502 after returning in chains from his third voyage to the New World.

Columbus compiled the Libro in 1501-1502 after returning in chains from his third voyage to the New World. He hoped that his notebook of biblical prophecies would inspire King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella to finance a fourth trip for him, one that would allow them to fulfill millennial prophecies of becoming monarchs of the New Jerusalem.

Columbus compiled the Libro in 1501-1502 after returning in chains from his third . He is coauthor of Christopher Columbus: The Great Adventure and Joachim of Fiore: A Study in Spiritual Perception and History. This is the first complete English translation of Columbus's "Book of Prophecies," a notebook of prophetic statements compiled by Christopher Columbus. West does not try and impose any ulterior motives on Columbus; he lets Columbus speak for himself and takes him at face value.

The Book of Prophecies (in Spanish, El Libro de las Profecías) is a compilation of apocalyptical religious revelations written by Christopher Columbus towards the end of his life.

The Book of Prophecies (in Spanish, El Libro de las Profecías) is a compilation of apocalyptical religious revelations written by Christopher Columbus towards the end of his life, probably with the assistance of his friend, the Carthusian monk Gaspar Gorricio. It was written between September 1501 and March 1502, with additions until about 1505.

The Libro de las profecías of Christopher Columbus. Much has been written about Columbus during this quincentennial year-perhaps too much. Gainesville: University of Florida Press, 1991. Nevertheless, many questions about the man and his impact on world history remain unanswered; indeed, some of them still remain unasked. A good deal of the writing has been polemical at best and at worst outright nonsensical.

Christopher Columbus was not the first person to propose that a person .

Christopher Columbus was not the first person to propose that a person could reach Asia by sailing west from Europe. In fact, scholars argue that the idea is almost as old as the idea that the Earth is round. That is, it dates back to early Rome. But Columbus had a different idea: Why not sail west across the Atlantic instead of around the massive African continent? The young navigator’s logic was sound, but his math was faulty. Christopher Columbus’s journal was written between August 3, 1492, and November 6, 1492 and mentions everything from the wildlife he encountered, like dolphins and birds, to the weather to the moods of his crew.

“Perhaps the most important single volume on Columbus ever published in English…The authors’ classification of Columbus’s piety as ‘evangelical’ will be controversial but is exactly right He as as cosmopolitan in his piety as in his cosmography….This is a marvelously well-written and organized study that has all the authority of deep scholarship.” –Leonard Sweet, president, Union Theological Seminary, Dayton, Ohio

Published for the quincentennial celebration of Columbus's first voyage, this was the first complete English translation of Columbus's largest and most enigmatic personal documents. West and King (and the work is really that of West - King began the translation but died long before the project was complete). The commentary is enlightening, and the translation is excellent. A newer translation by Blair Sullivan of a transcription and commentary by Roberto Rusconi is based on better textual information, but the translation by West and King has a poetic beauty that is missing in Sullivan's more literal translation. Students of Columbus will want both books.

Great collection of little-known writings from Columbus. Original language is beautiful.
