And now...Reasons for expreading Christianity

The reasons for expreading Christianity were that Indigenous people such as native americans (Aztecs and Incas) convert them into Christians and civilizated them. Some missionaries such as Francis Xavier as well as other Jesuits, Augustinians, Franciscans and Dominicans were moving to America for helping to convert Aztecs and Incas. In 1521, through the leadership and preaching of the Portuguese explorer Ferdinad Magellan, the first Catholics were baptized in all the world.They taught the Indians better farming methods, and easier ways of weaving and making pottery. Because some people questioned whether the Indians were truly human and deserved baptism, Pope Paul III in the papal bull Veritas Ipsa or Sublimis Deus confirmed that the Indians were deserving people.The native americans people were legally defined as children, and priests took on a paternalistic role, often enforced with corporal punishment.The Pope Paul III in the year 1537 affirm that native americans are free mans and that they need to convert them he say it with this words:<<Los indios son verdaderos hombres dotados de almas aptos en consecuencia para disponer de sus bienes y personas>>.
