Genre


Fernão Mendes Pinto (Date of Birth, unknown c.1509 – 8 July 1583) was a Portuguese explorer and writer. His voyages are recorded in Pilgrimage (Portuguese: Peregrinação) (1614), his autobiographical memoir. The historical accuracy of the work was, for many years debated due to the many events which seemed far fetched and unreasonable to western cultures. Some aspects of the work can be verified, particularly through Pinto's service to the Portuguese Crown and by his association with Jesuit missionaries.

“porque como o escuro era grande, o tempo muito frio, o mar muito grosso, o vento muito rijo, as aguas cruzadas, o escarcéo muito alto, e a força da tempestade muito terrivel, não havia cousa que bastasse a nos dar remedio, senão só a misericordia de Nosso Senhor,”
