|Título:||Father Diogo de Mesquita (1551-1614) and the cultivation of Western plants in Japan|
|Editorial:||Universidade Nova de Lisboa|
|Descripción:||A letter written by Father Diogo de Mesquita to Father Juan de Ribera, Rector of the Jesuit College in Manila, in October 1599, provides us with interesting information about the introduction of what we can term Western plants into Japan. These plants, which mainly consisted of fruit trees, arrived in Nagasaki from Europe and Spanish America. The presence of these plants in Japan was only possible due to a consolidated network of contacts that had been established between the Jesuits of the Portuguese padroado and the Spanish patronazgo, as well as due to the relationship that the Jesuits maintained with the mercantile community of Nagasaki.Keeping in mind that many of these plants were associated with a Mediterranean and Southern European lifestyle, it was but natural that, by means of the cultivation of these plants, various Jesuits would seek to recreate a landscape that reminded them of their original homelands.|
