Miriam Bodian’s study of crypto-Jewish martyrdom in Iberian lands depicts anew type of martyr that emerged in the late 16th century—a defiant, educated judaizing martyrwho engaged in disputes with inquisitors. By examining closely the Inquisition dossiers of four menwho were tried in the Iberian peninsula or Spanish America and who developed judaizing theologiesthat drew from currents of Reformation thinking that emphasized the authority of Scripture and thereligious autonomy of individual interpreters of Scripture, Miriam Bodian reveals unexpectedconnections between Reformation thought and historic crypto-Judaism. The complex personalitiesof the martyrs, acting in response to psychic and situational pressures, emerge vividly from thisabsorbing book.
