L'Espagne des Torquemada : catholiques, juifs et convertis au XVe siècle by Béatrice Leroy( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in French and Spanish and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analyzes the period from 1388 to 1498, tracing the lives of Cardinal Juan de Torquemada (1388-1468), Dominican reformer, and his nephew, Tomás de Torquemada (1420-1498), known as the Grand Inquisitor. Deals specifically with their milieu in Castile as a background to attitudes toward the Jews and the Conversos and reactions to the increasingly centralized power of the Catholic Monarchs. Contrasts the attitudes toward Jews, during the Inquisition, of Juan vis-à-vis Tomas de Torquemada, both of whom were the descendants of Conversos. Emphasizes the role of Tomas as the one who inspired the numerous edicts - notably, rigid laws - which restricted further the rights of Conversos to the fourth generation and inspired the expulsion of the Jews from Spain
L'expulsion des juifs d'Espagne by Béatrice Leroy( Book )

8 editions published in 1990 in French and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A history of the Jews in Spain until the expulsion of 1492. Analyzes the fortunes of the community under the Muslims and the Christian kings, recalling persecutions by the Church (disputations, compulsory attendance at sermons, deicide accusations, blood libels, forced conversions), social segregation, and popular riots and pogroms (in Navarre in 1321 and 1328, in Barcelona in 1285, in Aragon in 1348, and the general violence of 1391). Describes the problems of the Converso community, always suspected of false Christianity, the anti-Converso rebellion of Toledo (1449) which led to the introduction of the "limpieza de sangre" laws for eligibility to municipal councils, and the creation of the new Inquisition in 1478 with its subsequent trial of suspects for Judaizing. also refers to the blood libel of 1490 in La Guardia. Pt. 3 (pp. 111-150) describes the 1492 expulsion, the forced conversions, and the emigration routes of the Jews

L'historien et son roi : essai sur les chroniques castillanes, XIVe-XVe siècles by Béatrice Leroy( Book )

12 editions published in 2013 in French and English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La rédaction de l'Histoire est une prise de position autant qu'une satisfaction personnelle pour les écrivains des XIVe et XVe siècles qui voient dans un livre dédié au souverain une occasion de lui donner des leçons de gouvernement. Cela se vérifie en Castille aussi bien que dans les autres États de l'Occident, dans des décennies de profonds troubles politiques. Les historiographes y possèdent une solide culture humaniste, ils savent et aiment écrire, et ils sont tous engagés dans la vie politique. L'histoire de leur Castille, les chroniques des rois, les traités, les portraits des hommes illustres qui ont marqué les générations écoulées, tous ces textes sont des messages envoyés à leurs lecteurs, qui ont la charge du royaume ou qui prétendent participer au gouvernement. Pero López de Ayala, Fernán Pérez de Guzmán, Diego de Valera, Pedro Carrillo de Huete, Alfonso de Palencia, Hernando del Pulgar se penchent tour à tour, à la demande de la cour ou de leur pleine initiative, sur le déroulement des règnes qu'ils connaissent, auxquels ils participent, contre lesquels ils ont souvent des reproches à formuler et pour lesquels ils se donnent volontiers le rôle de censeurs. Cette élaboration de l'Histoire peut être suivie dans le présent ouvrage ; l'histoire de la Castille devient un message politique, avec des arguments, des exemples choisis et toujours des réflexions devant servir aux générations futures

Les édits d'expulsion des juifs, 1394-1492-1496-1501 by Béatrice Leroy( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in French and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traces the history of five decrees of expulsion of Jews in medieval Europe. Chronicles the decline of Jewish communities in Spain, France, Provence, and Portugal, due to the growing influence of the Catholic Church. Although each of these edicts was influenced by the socio-political environment of the specific country, the spirit behind all of them was similar. Argues that the governments of these countries viewed the steadfast loyalty of Jews to their tradition as a threat to the Conversos and the major motive to expel them. Includes the text of each edict in its original language, with a translation into modern French
