    History of the Bisayan People in the Philippine Islands: Evangelization and Culture at the Contact Period

    Ignacio Francisco Alcina, SJ

    Winner, National Book Award, Translation, 2002
    Translated by Cantius J. Kobak, OFM and Lucio Gutierrez, OP
    “Francisco Ignacio Alcina is clearly one of the main sources of information about our 17th-century past. To even dream that Alcina’s nine-book encyclopedia can be translated into modern English is itself worthy of commendation. To actually achieve the translation even only of the first volume of the first book of the first part of Alcina’s masterpiece is really something.”?National Book Awards citation
