The Book of Prophecies Christopher Columbus Pdf

The Book of Prophecies is a collection of biblical and medieval texts compiled by Christopher Columbus towards the end of his life. It reflects his religious beliefs and his vision of the discovery of the Americas as part of God's plan for the salvation of humanity.

The Book of Prophecies was written between September 1501 and March 1502, with additions until about 1505. It consists of four parts: the first part contains excerpts from the Bible, mainly from the Old Testament prophets; the second part contains excerpts from patristic writings and medieval theology, mainly from Saint Augustine, Saint Jerome, and Nicholas of Lyra; the third part contains a letter from Columbus to Ferdinand and Isabella, explaining the purpose and significance of his voyages; and the fourth part contains a chronological table of world history, from Adam to the end of times.


The Book of Prophecies reveals Columbus's deep conviction that he was chosen by God to fulfill the prophecies of the Scriptures, especially those related to the conversion of the Gentiles, the restoration of Israel, and the liberation of Jerusalem. He believed that his discoveries were part of a divine plan that would lead to the Second Coming of Christ and the end of the world. He also believed that he was guided by the Holy Spirit and that he had a special relationship with the Virgin Mary.

The Book of Prophecies is a unique and fascinating document that sheds light on the religious motivations and expectations of Columbus and his contemporaries. It also shows how Columbus interpreted his own achievements and failures in light of his faith and his understanding of history.
