Chapter Summary

This is the conclusory chapter of the book, which describes the fields of colonial Latin American and early modern peninsular literature and culture with case studies of individuals of Jewish origin who suffered religious and political persecution and produced literary and confessional discourses. The different cases studied in the book reveals that toleration and persecution of New Christians in the Iberian Atlantic World were linked directly to the political and economic interests of the different kings. The book recognizes one key aspect of the crucial intellectual, economic and political roles that descendents of Jews had in the development of the Iberian and American societies of the early modern and colonial period, and demonstrates their continuing influence to the present day.

Keywords: colonial period; early modern peninsular literature; Iberian Atlantic world
