Lusa - Business News - Portugal: State, Spain want documents from Magellan's circumnavigation voyage on UNESCO Memory of World Register

Lisbon, Nov.24,2021(Lusa) - Portugal and Spain will submit by Tuesday a joint application of unique documents on the circumnavigation voyage of Ferdinand Magellan to UNESCO's Memory of the World Register, the Portuguese government announced on Wednesday.
The announcement was made by the minister of foreign affairs, Augusto Santos Silva, during a press conference following a meeting of the National Commission for the Commemorations of the V Centenary of Circumnavigation, in Lisbon.
To journalists, the minister stressed the work done in the last two years to mark the first round the world trip (1519/1522), led by Fernão de Magalhães and completed by Sebastian Elcano, despite Covid-19 that affected many of the initiatives, such as the voyage of the Sagres school ship, interrupted by the pandemic.
The minister announced that Portugal and Spain will submit the candidacy to UNESCO by the end of this month, highlighting a particularity: "A set of documents (15) is presented - the Diary of Pigafetta [chronicler of this journey], an indirect account by Fernando de Oliveira [Portuguese] and 13 documents that exist in the national archives of Portugal and Spain and that allow to understand, also from other points of view, the inaugural meaning of the voyage of circumnavigation."
In this register, said Augusto Santos Silva, there are Portuguese documents and sets of documents, the best known of which is, deservedly, the letter of the discovery of Brazil (Pedro Vaz de Caminha).
Other assets with Portuguese participation included in this register are the Treaty of Tordesillas, the Collection Corpo Cronológico, the Dembos Archives, the report of the first South Atlantic Air Crossing by Gago Coutinho and Sacadura Cabral, the itinerary of Vasco da Gama's first voyage to India and the manuscripts of the Commentary on the Apocalypse (Beato de Liébana) in the Iberian Tradition.
Also the Codex Calixtinus from Santiago de Compostela Cathedral and other medieval copies of the Liber Sancti Iacobi: The Iberian Origins of the Jacobean Tradition in Europe, the record book of visas granted by the Portuguese Consul in Bordeaux Aristides de Sousa Mendes and Chapas Sínicas - Official Records of Macao during the Qing Dynasty (1693-1886).
Augusto Santos Silva highlighted the uniqueness of the set of documents that will be presented for this application, which includes, for example, the letter that the King of Spain sent to the Portuguese King, seeking to explain that the fact that he had promoted and funded a trip to the Moluccas did not mean any attempt to embarrass or harm the interests of the Portuguese crown.
"We hope that the other 11 countries traversed by the circumnavigation voyage will join in. They will certainly support this application," he said.
According to Augusto Santos Silva, these are the last days before the presentation of the candidacy, which ends on Tuesday. The presentation of the document to the national commissions of Portugal and Spain was left behind.
The Memory of the World programme was created by UNESCO in 1992 to protect and promote the world's documentary heritage through conservation and access to documents.
