Summary:
"As the power and pressure of the Inquisition grew in Portugal, the newly discovered land of Brazil became a favourite destination for Jewish converts to Catholicism, far from the Inquisition. What role did the New Christians play in the Portuguese colonization of Brazil? How did the Dutch invasion and rule of northeast Brazil influence this Crypto-Jewish community and how did it lead to the revival of Jewish culture in South America and the construction of the oldest synagogue in the Americas? What became of this young and vibrant Jewish community after the Dutch were thrown out by the Portuguese and how did it lead to what is called 'Marranism'?"--Container.
