Notes:
"Commissioned by unnamed Portuguese New Christians, a Spanish barrister, Martín de Zellorigo, published in 1619 at Madrid a work directed to the Spanish Inquisitor General, Dominican Friar Luís de Aliaga (and indirectly to King Philip III), contesting the procedures of the Portuguese Inquisition ... The Alegación is the first (and only outright) attack on the Portuguese Inquisition to be printed in the Iberian Peninsula and one of two Apologies for the Portuguese New Christian cause to be printed in Madrid during the reign of the Portuguese Inquisition."--A.J.
