Chapter Summary

Jews had been absent from the Iberian Peninsula ever since the beginning of the 16th century. Dr. Ángel Pulido Fernández&s;s interest in their whereabouts is highly intriguing, as is the response of the Sephardic Jews to this initiative. This chapter presents Ángel Pulido’s motives, his interest in the Sephardic Jews, and the response to the latter. Pulido was impressed with the perseverance of the Sephardic Jews in keeping their Jewish-Spanish language and was convinced that they could make an ideal and exemplary public destined for the promotion and enhancement of the sphere of Spanish culture as well as its political influence. The chapter discusses the response of the Sephardic Jews of the Mediterranean Diaspora to Pulido's initiative. Sephardic Jews strove to advance and better their life circumstances by integrating themselves into the modern world.
