Blum, Ann. 1998. "Public Welfare and Child Circulation, Mexico City, 1877 to 1925." These and dozens of others cultures flourished in the centuries before the arrival of Europeans. While the Spanish and Portuguese were plundering in the New World, Renaissance Europe was in tumult.� Similar to how the Crusades backfired to a degree, the invention and use of the printing press, in about 1439, did not turn out as the Church had hoped.� With the advent of the printed word, the Bible was Europe’s biggest bestseller, and the Church hoped to expand its religious hegemony through literacy.� It also backfired.� By 1500, literacy was growing in England’s nascent middle class, and was becoming more common in Europe.� During the 1400s, student enrollment in German universities quadrupled, and it was representative of Europe as a whole.� Europe was slowly becoming educated.� When Columbus made his way back to Spain in 1493, Europeans began reading of new lands.� While Columbus called himself the “ Christ-bearer ,” there were about zero conversions to Christianity among the quickly disappearing Caribbean natives.� When Cort�s and his mercenaries conquered the Aztecs, however, the Church had its greatest Christian recruitment opportunity ever.� In 1524, twelve Christian missionaries came to Mesoamerica to convert the natives that survived the conquest.� The mass conversion of Mesoamerica began.� The spectacle of baptisms of thousands of natives at a time could be witnessed.� Although the conversions were rather compulsory, and burning Aztec books was part of the Christianizing process, and the Inquisition followed closely behind the converting missionaries, the Catholic Church never before had such immediate and massive success in recruiting the sheep to its flock.� However, just as the Catholic Church was enjoying its greatest recruiting success, its European downfall began.
