Seventh in a series on Anti-Semitism.

Mel Brooks' takeoff from History of the World notwithstanding, the Inquisition and the expulsion from Spain were together one of the great nightmares of the Jewish people, rivalling the destruction of the Temple in significance. We will examine both the Inquisiton and the expulsion, and consider their consequences both as regards anti-Semitism and as regards Jewish self-definition in the aftermath of the catastrophe.
