Abstract

Throughout the 16th century streams of global knowledge arrived in England, drawing on the continental cultural output and owing to the literary endeavours of individuals who were knowledgeable in many languages. This paper examines the first English edition of the “Decades de orbe novo“ (1555), focusing on the processes of text migration and adaptation of Peter Martyr of Anghiera’s text as it passed from one culture to another. The article also shows the complex ways in which the ’Decades of the newe worlde’ provided 16th-century readers a sensitive insight into the mental world and the social constructs of the indigenous peoples.
