Description

During the Spanish Inquisition on the island of Majorca, a small enclave of local Jews - all of whom were pressured into baptism as Christians - determine to escape detention in the Inquisition by escaping to lands of freedom across the Atlantic. But weather frustrates their flight, and eventually thirty-seven of them are captured and condemned to the stake in the Auto-de-Fe.Riera recreates the lives of Majorcan Jews in the seventeenth century - in a world of inquisitors, aristocrats, merchants, farmers, and soldiers - in a lush mosaic of history and period detail, religion and cultural lore.show more
