- 'Professor Michael Alpert offers here a beautiful work, rigorously documented, clearly structured, which succeeds, and this is not its lease merit, to give a panoramic as well as a punctual view of such a difficult and vast question. A dense, precise, clear and alive study, a scientific and measured approach of a fascinating question, that the historian must view without passion, but not without compassion, such is this excellent book that will be appreciated by anyone interested in crypto-Judaism in particular or the Inquisition in general, but also anyone interested in improving his or her knowledge of Classic Spain, for he or she will find material for an enriching reflection.' - Michele Escamilla, La Lettre Sepharade 'Alpert discusses the conflicting theories and brings statistical, as well as social, information to bear on these issues. Anyone who is interested in Jewish History will find this book extremely rewarding.' - Rabbi Jeremy Rosen, Jewish Chronicle.
