All this he relates simply and without ornament or great words or arguments, a fact which impresses me with the truth of what he describes. I do not see what advantage he could obtain by lying, even if he preferred falsehood to the truth. In addition, he is now settled with his parents in this country. He does not wander from place to place, gipsylike, a practice common among vagabonds and liars in general, and he must therefore expect to encounter other travellers on their return from the same islands who could convict him of falsehood if he were lying.
James lies buried at Compostella, at the end of the earth, which is called Finisterre, where he is held in honour, and the other apostle rests in India towards the rising of the sun. The antipodes have existed, therefore, from ancient times, and although in the days of St. Augustine the New World of America had not been discovered beneath the globe, yet in this way the antipodes were always in being. Other theologians, and among them Nicholas Lyra4 (who has otherwise always been regarded as an excellent scholar), have insisted that since the globe lies or swims as to one half thereof in water, and since the part which we inhabit projects above the waters, so the lower hemisphere beneath us is buried deep down in the sea and is without life.

That he saw what he tells us he saw, and suffered the vicissitudes which he describes, cannot, I think, be doubted by anyone who has read his narrative with attention. Winckelmann, who published his work Der Americanischen Neuen Welt Beschreibung in 1664, while engaged among the archives at Cassel, discovered thirty-four of the original wood blocks used by Hans Staden and used them again, although he does not seem to have known of the existence of the various editions of Staden’s book which were issued in 1557.
