Christian ideal and commitment in the world. Three lay people of the 16th century

The article deals with three lay christians of the 16th century: Catalina de Bustamante
(ca1490-1545), educator of women in Mexico; Pedro López (ca1527-1596), doctor
in Mexico; Antonio Enmanuele Ne Vunda (ca1574-1608), ambassador of the King
of Congo to the Holy See. The three characters can be exponents of the world of
“first globalization”. They are examples of how the Christian faith transforms the
lives of secular people.
