About the Book
In the second volume of his classic exploration of the Spanish-Jewish community, Baer covers such major historical events as the Spanish Inquisition and the Expulsion of the Jews from Spain. This work examines the effect of church policy on the Jewish population in the 15th century, and the points at which Jewish culture as a whole was altered by Spain’s actions.

Dr. Baer’s study is history-writing in the grand manner . . . enormously fascinating reading.
His scope is wide . . . a generous ration of the secular Hebrew poetry of the period.
