Benzoni stressed the atrocities perpetrated by the Spaniards and their hypocritical Christian behavior which prevented the Indians from fully embracing Christianity. In relation to the second option, writing about the New World without ever having visited it, one example is the Essais of Michel de Montaigne There, he not only repeated the accusations of Spanish cruelty and hypocrisy, but also wrote sympathetically about the Indians, praising their refusal to succumb to tortures and remaining true to their beliefs.

Moreover, far from being barbarians, their public roads and cities rivalled those of ancient Greece and Rome with their stateliness and beauty. In terms of military technology, however, he acknowledged Spanish superiority, but with a twist. Horses, armor, and canons, the pride of Spanish triumphalism and the cause of panic in Indian accounts, reappear in Montaigne's "On Cannibals" and "On Coaches" , for diminishing Spanish triumphs by attributing them to the use of these weapons that the Indians had never seen before and could not match. Black Legend propagandists were not the only ones to write about the New World during the long sixteenth century through the lenses of their well-established agendas.

All the perspectives on the conquests and colonization of the areas that would become part of what now is known as Latin America had their stakes: Spanish triumphalism, the rejection of its results, and its justification; Indian consternation and grief confronting the collapse of their societies; European envy towards Spanish imperialist success. These attitudes proved to be a recurring feature in the way that Latin America was contextualized within global history. However, the particular contents sustaining these attitudes changed over time as the following sections show.
