Maya Christians and Their Churches in Sixteenth-Century Belize

In this chapter, an argument is made for the role of Franciscans in proselytizing the Maya of Belize. The origins of the regular and secular clergy are described, with a particular focus on illuminating the world of the Mendicants, their outlook, and their expectations in terms of conversion in the New World. The role of the Council of Trent in changing attitudes toward conversion is examined, and the impetus behind the missions in Belize is described.

Keywords:   Millennial Kingdom, Mendicants, Franciscans, Council of Trent, mission, regular clergy, secular clergy
