Marrano Religiosity in Hispanic America in the Seventeenth Century

Hence, we must avoid using the reductive schemas of an apologetic history and instead restore to marrano religiosity its full measure of complexity and diversity. We must cover a broad spectrum between two poles — that of actual fervent Judaists and that of sincere Christians — with a whole series of intermediate cases and syncretic combinations.
