What was the deal with this guy?

Was he retarded for trying to bring back paganism? Or was his cause righteous.

How autistic was his religion compared to the prevailing Christianity at the time?

>"While I was in the boat, I captured a very beautiful Carib woman, whom the said Lord Admiral gave to me. When I had taken her to my cabin she was naked—as was their custom. I was filled with a desire to take my pleasure with her and attempted to satisfy my desire. She was unwilling, and so treated me with her nails that I wished I had never begun. But—to cut a long story short—I then took a piece of rope and whipped her soundly, and she let forth such incredible screams that you would not have believed your ears. Eventually we came to such terms, I assure you, that you would have thought that she had been brought up in a school for whores."
- Michele de Cuneo, Italian noble on Christopher Colombus's second voyage.
