dc.description.abstract The Mexican Inquisition arrested Don Guillén Lombardo de Guzmán in 1642 for practicing magic, selling peyote to an Indian and plotting to overthrow Mexico's colonial government. As an Irish Catholic of noble descent, Don Guillén had studied in London and Madrid, captained a pirate ship and fought in the Spanish Army before arriving in the New World. He spoke at least five languages, was a prolific writer and was one of Colonial Mexico City's most notorious heretics. This thesis analyzes Don Guillén's life in the context of the 17th century Atlantic world and uses it to explore the nature of religious crime and policing in the Americas.
