Description

This is a massive and comprehensive study of the expulsion of the Sephardic Jews from Spain, ironically beginning the same day that Christopher Columbus embarked on his discovery of the New World. This is both a popular and a scholarly work. Many sources including primary documents were consulted to answer many questions about the reason for the expulsion and many other related matters, The ruler of Turkey thought that  Queen Isabel and King Fernando were crazy to expel what, in effect, were her leading citizens. Spain never recovered for this act based on the religious conviction that Spain, as the bulwark of Catholicism, had to expel Jews, the Moors, and protestants. Contains some charts. Has an index. 6 x 9 size.
