Promotional Information

A new interpretation of crypto-Jewish martyrdom in Iberian lands during the Inquisition

About the Author

Miriam Bodian is Professor of Jewish History in the Graduate School of Jewish Studies at Touro College. Her book Hebrews of the Portuguese Nation: Conversos and Community in Early Modern Amsterdam (IUP, 1998) received a National Jewish Book Award for History and a Koret Prize for History.


"An important and timely book... While a great deal of work has been done on the Inquisition, the approach taken here is very readable and up to date in its findings about this controversial institution; the intricacies of its operation are really brought home in the individual case studies." Allison P. Coudert
