Overview

Conversos of the Americas highlights a barbaric and gruesome religious episode, namely the Spanish-Portuguese Inquisition, Spanish Civil War, and explores the subtle and hidden identity of the New World Hispanics, most of whom are descendants of Jews who have merged with Native Peoples of the Americas and from Africa. There are few descendants from Mexico´s conversos except for crypt-Jews who could not flee North to New Mexico. It is written to teach readers about our multi-ethnic world, the horrors of religious intolerance, the newest practices of Islamic hate and murders. Interestingly, this book includes twenty pictures showing in detail the barbaric events and individuals, illustrated by master artists of Spain and beyond.
