This thesis is a canon, catalogue or dictionary of chroniclers of the Indies. It is an indispensable work for the history of Spanish and Spanish American thought as well as for the development of historical science as such. Thus, a biographic dictionary of Chroniclers of the Indies is published. The underlying thread of this work goes through the historiography of the Discovery. This review has a multidisciplinary character, especially useful for the construction of a philosophy of American history.

The Dictionary is divided into two sections: the first deals with the chroniclers of the period, from 1492 to ca. 1550 and the second with chroniclers from 1550 to 1700. The long list of chroniclers is already proof of how important it is as a source of study for the development of current Spanish and Spanish American thought.
