Father Bartholeme

Reide Wallace, Abby Gordon, Grant, and Aiden Drury


Father Bartholeme was the first priest in the New World. He served as chaplain during Christopher Columbus. He suggested using African slave labor because they held no claim to the land, but soon thereafter renounced his proposal and worked to eradicate slave.

He renounced his encomienda and denounced his exploration because of the mistreatment of Cubans
