Christopher Columbus, saint or sinner? For centuries, Christopher's adventures across the ocean blue were celebrated as the advent of the modern age and the discovery of a mysterious, far off land. Today, his legacy is hotly debated among academics and students. Was Columbus a fanatical perpetrator of genocide, or a celebrated saint that brought the light of truth and knowledge to the backward natives? Or, is there another explanation, a more powerful explanation for Columbus' life. This site seeks to portray Columbus in an objective light, laying bare both his successes and failures and judging him not upon the altar of public opinion, but rather upon the altar of truth.
