CORPI is concerned with questions of religious change and specifically of the change brought about by forced mass conversion in late medieval/early modern Iberia. It departs from two convictions:

  • Secondly, that the desire to eradicate difference within the majority society was always combined with the fear of infiltration and contamination, and that the disappearance of differences exacerbated the search for allegedly essential characteristics in those with Jewish and Muslim ancestors, who were generally seen by Christians as crypto-Jews or crypto-Muslims.                (Read further)
