Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Using mainly inquisitorial trial documents, Alpert (modern and contemporary history of Spain, U. of Westminster) throws light on the structures of crypto-Jewish life in Spain during the 17th and 18th centuries. He also looks at the origin of the phenomenon of Spanish people who were baptized Catholics secretly practicing Judaism, and what it meant for the Spanish Church, the Spaniard in the street, and Jews leading open Jewish lives in other countries.
