The Participation of New Christians and Crypto-Jews in the Conquest, Colonization, and Trade of Spanish America, 1521–1660

MODERNITY EXCLUDED THE JEWS from one of its biggest enterprises: the discovery, conquest, and colonization of America. Notwithstanding, the Jews found ways to participate in this adventure, although in Christian garb. The persecutions and social pressures lived through by the Jews from Castile, and in minor form by Aragonese Jewry, during their last hundred years in the Iberian Peninsula forged a tendency in the baptized and their successors, the New Christians, to assimilate into the religion of the majority. It was a span of time in which almost two-thirds of the Hebrew nation converted to Christianity, by coercion or voluntarily.
