Tale of a 15th century Spanish "conversa"

In an article for the Jerusalem Post, professor of Jewish history and dean at the Schechter Institute, Renee Levine Melamme tells the story of a family of 15th century "crypto-Jews" tried by the Spanish Inquisition in Ciudad Real.

The story follows the lives - and deaths - of Leonor González and her family, Spanish conversos accused of secretly practicing Judaism by the Catholic Church. Melamme's research is based on  the Records of the Trials of the Spanish Inquisition in Ciudad Real, Volumes 1, 3, Jerusalem 1974, 1981.
