Editorial Reviews

Review

"His scholarship is massive and his book is both easily manageable and thorough."

His scholarship is massive and his book is both easily manageable and thorough.

""Secrecy and Deceit" is a carefully researched, dense, and thorough historical record of the crypto-Jews."

"Gitlitz's magnum opus provides a full fascinating history of the quixotic religion developed by the Jews who were forced to convert to Catholicism in early modern Spain."

." . . this book is thoroughly researched, the author having utilized Inquisition records, chronicles, rabbinical rulings, correspondence, eyewitness accounts, religious manuals, and other historical documents. This book is highly recommended for those interested in the history of the Iberian Jews."

Format: Paperback
This book is thorough in documenting the practices of crypto Jews from the 1390 uprising till the 20th century. The primary sources are from the inquistion records and contemporary documents. Critical volume for those interested in Sephardic Crypto Jewish customs.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lots of information on the hidden /Crypto Jews. Not all of the information was factual from a halachic point of view. And most of the commentaries are in Spanish. The book is written in English, why would you put the commentaries in Spanish? I don't read Spanish and I'm sure many other people don't either. So next time have the reader be ware and let us know that we won't have an easy time of reading the commentaries!-Lisa
