In 1341 in Aragon, a Jewish convert to Christianity used to be sentenced to demise, basically to be pulled from the burning stake and right into a formal non secular interrogation. His confession was once as surprising to his inquisitors as his brush with mortality is to us: the condemned guy defined a Jewish conspiracy to cajole contemporary converts to denounce their newfound Christian religion. His claims have been corroborated through witnesses and have become the catalyst for a sequence of trials that spread out over the process the following twenty months. Between Christian and Jew heavily analyzes those occasions, which Paola Tartakoff considers paradigmatic of inquisitorial lawsuits opposed to Jews within the interval. the pains additionally function the spine of her nuanced attention of Jewish conversion to Christianity—and the unwelcoming Christian reaction to Jewish conversions—during a interval that's often celebrated as a time of relative interfaith harmony.
The booklet lays naked the depth of the mutual hostility among Christians and Jews in medieval Spain. Tartakoff's study unearths that most of Jewish converts of the interval grew to become to baptism so as to get away own problems, comparable to poverty, clash with different Jews, or unsatisfied marriages. they typically met with a cold reception from their new Christian brethren, making it tricky to combine into Christian society. Tartakoff explores Jewish antagonism towards Christians and Christianity by means of interpreting the goals and strategies of Jews who sought to re-Judaize apostates in addition to the Jewish responses to inquisitorial prosecution in the course of an exact research. Prosecutions equivalent to the 1341 trial have been understood via papal inquisitors to be in protection of Christianity opposed to perceived Jewish assaults, even if Tartakoff indicates that Christian fears approximately Jewish hostility have been frequently exaggerated. Drawing jointly the money owed of Jews, Jewish converts, and inquisitors, this cultural background deals a huge learn of interfaith family members in medieval Iberia.
