Triptych of Infamy
(Tríptico de la infamia)
Jacques Le Moyne, François Dubois and Théodore de Bry were three Protestant painters who were witnesses and interpreters of the horrors committed in the name of religion —and the desire for wealth— by Europeans in the 16th-century conquest of America. This novel is a reconstruction of the complex relationships between the old and new continents. It shows the impact this unfamiliar world had on the European gaze, with the religious wars in Europe as a backdrop. Tríptico de la infamia is a novel that abounds in historical richness and poetic beauty, and gives a new perspective on one of the bloodiest and most difficult moments in history.
