Description

The author unmasks the secret lives of conversos and judaizantes and their probable influence on the Catholic Church in the New World, and traces the cult of the Virgin of Guadalupe backward to its fourteenth-century origins. The trail from that point forward can be followed to its interface with early modern conversos and their descendants at the highest levels of the Church and the monarchy in Spain and Colonial Mexico. She describes key players who were somehow immune to the dangers of the Inquisition and were allowed to display vestiges of their family’s Jewish identity.¬† This is a very unique, spellbinding, and controversial study.
