Publisher Comments:

The Holy Office of the Inquisition (a royal tribunal that addressed issues of heresy and offenses to morality) was established in Peru in 1570 and operated there until 1820. In this book, Ana E. Schaposchnik provides a deeply researched history of the Inquisitionandrsquo;s Lima Tribunal, focusing in particular on the cases of persons put under trial for crypto-Judaism in Lima during the 1600s.

She looks closely at how the lives of the accusedandmdash;and in some cases the circumstances of their deathsandmdash;were shaped by actions of the Inquisition on both sides of the Atlantic. She explores the prisonersandrsquo; lives before and after their incarcerations and reveals the variety and character of prisonersandrsquo; religiosity, as portrayed in the Inquisitionandrsquo;s own sources. She also uncovers individual and collective strategies of the prisoners and their supporters to stall trials, confuse tribunal members, and attempt to ameliorate or at least delay the most extreme effects of the trial of faith.

Schaposchnik contends that the Lima Tribunalandrsquo;s goal, more than volume or frequency in punishing heretics, was to discipline and shape culture in Peru.
