A History of the Marranos Reviews

    I know I’m not alone in admitting that I often find history books hard to get through (an embarrassing admission in my case as I’m a freelance assistant to a historian), but I’ll sometimes push myself for the sake of the subject. That was certainly the case here in this history of the Jews who practiced an underground form of Judaism in Spain, Portugal, Amsterdam, and even the New World. The most grabbing part of it was unfortunately the most gruesome, and that was Chapter V, which was about the methods of the Inquisition, tortures and all. That chapter was as bad as anything as I’ve ever read about the Holocaust, yet it’s the chapter I recommend the most. The legends and practices of the Marranos are a specialized interest, but everyone should learn about what the Spanish Inquisition was really like, horrifying a read as it may be.

    Chi erano i marrani? come vivevano? cosa ne fu di loro? un buon libro con buone risposte a queste domande.
