Example text

Christianized peasants no longer made ritual offerings to nature in hopes of averting famine and plague; instead, they offered prayers to Christ.

Priests and warrior-nobles ruled over free Aztec commoners who farmed communal land. The nobles also used huge numbers of non-Aztec Indians to labor as slaves or serfs on their private estates. An aggressive people, the Aztecs soon subjugated most of central Mexico. Their rulers demanded both economic and human tribute from subject peoples, and their priests brutally sacrificed thousands of men and women; they believed that these ritual murders sustained the cosmos, ensuring fertile fields and the daily return of the sun.

While watching this, some soldiers saw them [the Indians] placing bundles of bows and arrows secretively in some palm leaves, and other Christians saw that the huts were filled high and low with concealed people. The Governor was warned, and he placed his helmet on his head and commanded that all should mount their horses. . And all the Spaniards fought like men of great spirit, and twenty-two of them died, and they wounded another one hundred and forty-eight [Spaniards] with six hundred and eighty-eight arrow wounds, and they killed seven horses and wounded twenty-nine others.
