A highly readable account... provides a very useful look into the lives of individuals whose activities brought them before the Inquisition.(Sixteenth Century Journal)
Kagan and Dyer have provided a useful service in translating excerpts from inquisitorial documents housed in Spanish and Mexican archives.(Journal of Church and State)
Through depositions related to Judaism, Islam, heretical Christianity and sexual deviance, the book effectively addresses many of the ethnic, racial, religious, and social tensions that plagued early modern Spain and its colonies... An excellent resource for the history classroom.(Gender and History)
The editors of this volume have performed a useful service for anyone interested in the Inquisition's activities.(Renaissance Studies)
The authors have edited and translated the original documents with skill and sensitivity and accompanied each testimony with useful explanatory notes. The resulting autobiographies are of primary importance to historians of the period for what they teach us about prisoners’ lives, their tactics of dissimulation and the power of their testimony which, it might be argued, went as far as to challenge the authority of the Inquisition itself.(History) See all Product Description
