Resumen


Este artículo analiza la presencia de comerciantes armenios de Nueva Julfa en Manila, y tiene por objeto tender un puente entre las fuentes documentales españolas y la rica historiografía sobre la diáspora comercial julfana. Atraídos por la plata que llegaba de Acapulco, los armenios jugaron un importante papel comercial en las Filipinas. Abordamos su complicada relación con las autoridades españolas, su participación en los intercambios tanto inter-asiáticos como transpacíficos, y sus experiencias vitales relatadas por ellos mismos ante el Tribunal de la Inquisición en Manila.

Palabras clave


comerciantes armenios; extranjeros en Manila; diáspora comercial; comercio intercultural; préstamos a riesgo de mar; comercio colonial español
