BUIL, Bernardo (boo-eel'), Spanish missionary, born in Catalonia; died in Cuxa in 1520. He was a member of the Benedictine order, a monk of St. Benoit, in Austria, and in 1493 was appointed by the pope vicar-apostolic in the New World. He accompanied Columbus on his second voyage to the New World, bringing with him several priests. In consequence of differences with Columbus respecting the treatment of the natives of Hispaniola, he returned to Spain, supported the charges that brought about the downfal1 of the admiral, and died abbot of the convent at Cuxa. An account of what he did in America, entitled "Nova Typis transacta navigatione Novi Orbis Indiae occi-dentalis," published in 1621 under the name of Franeiscus Honorius Philoponus, is supposed to have been written by Bull himself.

In this powerful, historic work, Stan Klos unfolds the complex 15-year U.S.
Founding period revealing, for the first time, four distinctly different United
American Republics. This is history on a splendid scale -- a book about the not
quite unified American Colonies and States that would eventually form a fourth
republic, with only 11 states, the United States of America: We The
People. Click Here
