summary
This book focuses on the Iberian Jews and conversos, Jews who converted to Christianity. It explores the idea of the “other” in both Jewish and Christian traditions, the differences between the perspectives of the “persecuted” and “persecutors,” and the vision of modernity among some of the Iberian Jews of the period. Special attention is devoted to da Costa and Spinoza, offering a new perspective on the Jewish history of ideas.
