9780253024015: Narratives from the Sephardic Atlantic: Blood and Faith (Indiana Series in Sephardi and Mizrahi Studies)

Identity, family, and community unite three autobiographical texts by New World crypto-Jews, or descendants of Jews who were forced to convert to Christianity in 17th-century Iberia and Spanish America. Ronnie Perelis presents the fascinating stories of three men who were caught within the matrix of inquisitorial persecution, expanding global trade, and the network of crypto-Jewish activity. Each text, reflects the unique experiences of the author and illuminates their shared, deeply rooted attachment to Iberian culture, their Atlantic peregrinations, and their hunger for spiritual enlightenment. Through these writings, Perelis focuses on the social history of transatlantic travel, the economies of trade that linked Europe to the Americas, and the physical and spiritual journeys that injected broader religious and cultural concerns into this complex historical moment.

About the Author:

Ronnie Perelis is the Chief Rabbi Dr. Isaac Abraham and Jelena (Rachel) Alcalay Chair and Assistant Professor of Sephardic Studies at the Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies of Yeshiva University.

Review:

"Given its emphasis on the formation of identity through representation and performance, this book resides at a promising intersection between literary analysis, history, and cultural anthropology. Appealing and eminently usable as a teaching text." ―David Graizbord, author of Souls in Dispute



"Engaging and very valid for readers interested not only in Jewish studies, but in history, and religious and cultural studies of the Early Modern Iberian and Colonial Latin American times." ―Lucia Costigan, author of Through Cracks in the Wall: Modern Inquisitions and New Christian Letrados in the Iberian Atlantic World
