« back to classes page
There is strong circumstantial evidence that some of the founders of New Mexico's oldest Hispanic families may have been Jews hiding from the Inquisition on New Spain's northern frontier in the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. This presentation will attempt to untangle history from social myth and identity romanticism. We may also have one or more scenes presented by live actors from the play, The Merchant of Santa Fe, written about the crypto-Jews of 1670 New Mexico. Suggested reading: To the End of the Earth: A History of the Crypto-Jews of New Mexico (2008) by Stanley M. Hordes
