Abstract

Among the Inquisition documents recently acquired by the Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley, is the trial of Leonor de Carvajal, sister of the more famous Luis de Carvajal. The songs and poems recorded in Leonor de Carvajal's trial, including a version of the Mosaic Law in verse, proved to be damning evidence against Leonor and the rest of the family. This study examines several texts, some of which are published here for the first time, taking into account their historical context and underscoring their importance in the Crypto Jewish oral tradition.
