Synopsis: Holland was the first of the Lower countries to give refuge to Marranos (crypto-Jews) from Spain who opted to return to open observance of Judaism. The city of Amsterdam became the center of Jewish hope in the seventeenth century. It was in this city that a number of Sephardic playwrights brought about a renaissance of Jewish drama. Although there is an abundance of scholarly research in the field of the Spanish Comedia and its main representatives in Spain, no critic or scholar has dealt with the small but important group of Sephardic playwrights who, following the footsteps of Lope, developed the Spanish Comedia in Amsterdam. This study analyzes the plays of these Sephardic playwrights: Miguel Levi de Barrios, Rehuel Jessurun, Moses Zacuto and David Franco Mendes. Contents: The Conversos of Spain and The Jews of Amsterdam; Comedias de Capa y Espada (Cloak and Sword Plays); Oriental/Captive Plays; Autos Sacramentales; Biblical Plays.

About the Author: Haydee Litovsky is Educational Director at the Temple Solael in Westhills, California.

Book Description University Press of America, Lanham, Maryland, 1991. Hardcover. Condition: vg. First edition. 8vo. ix,173pp. Maroon cloth with silver lettering on cover and spine. Near fine condition. "We find traces of a highly developed drama among the Spanish and Portuguese Jews of Amsterdam in the seventeenth century. Due to their contact with the arts of the Mediterranean people, who were at the time enjoying the height of civilized life, their cultural background was very sophisticated. At the time when the Spanish classical theater was shaped into its final form by Lope de Vega, who with unprecedented skill brought together and consolidated many literal traditions, the Sephardum of Amsterdam enjoyed a literary renaissance.".
