En la raya de Portugal: Solidaridad y tensiones en la comunidad judeoconversa

Portada
Universidad de Salamanca, 1 ene. 1994 - 286 páginas
A micro-history of the Converso condition, taking as examples four Converso families in Ciudad Rodrigo and Extremadura, Spain, at the climax of the Portuguese Converso immigration, 1610-60. Analyzes the family structure and everyday life of the Conversos, outlining endogamy and nuances of religiosity (from fervent Catholicism to crypto-Judaism), as well as their persecution through "limpieza de sangre" statutes and Inquisitorial trials. States that the violent Inquisitorial repression, culminating in a series of autos-da-fé in 1662, together with economic factors, resulted in a new wave of Converso emigrations to France and the Netherlands.
