New Christians as Sugar Cultivators and Traders in the Portuguese Atlantic, 1450-1800

SUGAR SHAPED NEWWORLD SOCIETY in the Portuguese, British, French, Dutch, and Danish colonies of South America and the Caribbean. Between 1400 and 1800, sugar, slavery, and plantations were the three key factors in the Atlantic economy in which Europeans, Americans, Africans, and Asians of different religious backgrounds entered. Settlers of Jewish descent, called New Christians, were among the participants who cultivated and traded this sweet cash crop (see Fig. 23.1).1 This chapter will demonstrate that New Christians found in sugar cultivation and trade new opportunities to gain upward social mobility, but that in order to prosper from their newly acquired status and to avoid Inquisitorial prosecution, New Christians accommodated socially and religiously to local society and its mores.
