"In 1550 he (Las Casas) took part in a great controversy with Juan de
Sepulveda, one of the most celebrated scholars of that time. Sepulveda
wrote a book in which he maintained the right of the pope and the king
of Spain to make war upon the heathen people of the New World and bring
them forcibly into the fold of Christ.... In maintaining his ground
that persuasion is the only lawful method for making men Christians,
extreme nicety of statement was required, for the least slip might bring
him within the purview of the Inquisition. Men were burning at the
stake for heresy while this discussion was going on, and the controversy
more than once came terribly near home."
[Discovery of America, Chapter XI:
Las Casas, John Fiske, 1892]
