The Relation about the antiquities of the Indians of the friar Jerónimo Ramón Pané was finished at the end of 1498. It is the first book written in the New World. It is also the first description of the religiosity of the Taino Indians, inhabitants of Santo Domingo.
Fray Ramón Pané, “poor hermit of the Order of San Jerónimo” as he introduces himself, arrived on the island in the company of Christopher Columbus on his second voyage, in 1494. After living a year in the fort of La Magdalena, at the suggestion of Columbus and in order to learn the language, he moved to live with the cacique Guarionex.
For almost two years he remained with this cacique until disappointed because he abandoned Christian teachings, he moved to live with the cacique Mabiatué who expressed his desire to adhere to Christianity. Pané spent three years with this other chieftain.
It is thought that Pané would have delivered his manuscript to Columbus, when he returned to Spain in August 1500.
In Spain the Manuscript was seen and was in the hands of at least three people:

  • Pedro Mártir de Anglería who included it in the first of his Decades of the New World;
  • Fray Bartolomé de las Casas who extracts it and includes it in his History of the Indies
  • and Hernando Colón who reproduces it in its entirety in the History of Admiral Don Cristóbal Colón.

The paradox is that, despite the mentions of these authors, the original of Pané of the Relation on the antiquities of the Indians disappeared.
