Crypto-Judaism and the Spanish Inquisition - download pdf or read online

By Michael Alpert

Этот текст - об испанском тайном иудаизме и инквизиции, стремившейся искоренить " иудейскую ересь " среди крещенных евреев и потомков испанских евреев, крещенных между 1391 и 1492 гг. В течение столетий они тайно твердо придерживались веры своих предков в Испании, которая была полностью католической. В книге приводятся примеры частных случаев из жизни крипто-иудеев на протяжении 250-летней кампании инквизиции: мужчин и женщин, старых и молодых, богатых и бедных, которые были арестованы, содержались в тюрьмах, подвергались допросам и пыткам в поисках доказательства их скрытого иудаизма. Используя документы допросов заключенных и их признаний, автор анализирует характер испанского иудаизма, ритуалов, домашней жизни и тайной веры, которая упорно сохранялась многими поколениями. Крипто-иудаизм отмечался испанскими властями, как серьезная угроза даже в середине XVIII в. пока инквизиция, в конце концов, одержала победу.Образцы сканов:
