The Unconverted Self

Christianity did not begin as an identity clearly separated from that of Jews and Judaism. Its history clearly had not yet ended. By the sixteenth century, the Muslims had once again taken Jerusalem. Yet many churchmen believed, with Bernardino de Sahagún, that Christianity was winning from east to west. Sahagún solved the problem of Nahua origins by assimilating the Nahua to the ancient Greeks and Romans. Compared with the presence of unconverted humans — Jews and Muslims — within Christian Europe itself, however, the discovery of unconverted humans in the extreme west was easier to fit into the culmination of the salvific history of time and space.
