Gainesville: UP of Florida, 2002. 161 pp. ISBN 0-8130-2475-7 Despite its title, this book focuses on selected passages from literary works by four or five converso authors from fifteenth-century Castilla. Works on converso writings such as this are sometimes presented as a kind of novel gesture. There may be something to this, but they seem also to bring to the fore the question of academic traditionalism or historiography. By 1875, when Don José Amador de los Ríos published the first volume basic patterns of research on converso literature were already in place, their influence to some extent assured.
