First and foremost, I would like to thank Saint Louis University (Madrid Campus) for its ongoing support for my Converso and Morisco conferences and publications. I would also like to thank Juan Ignacio Pulido, with whom I organized the 2017 conference at which most of the subjects that make up this volume were first discussed. I am also grateful to Professor Pulido’s institution, Alcalá de Henares University, for providing a wonderfully atmospheric venue for the 2017 event: the conference room in the University’s Colegio de San Ildefonso, where many of Spain’s great Converso scholars first embraced a humanist credo. My thanks also to Arjan van Dijk at Brill for kindly coming to my aid at the eleventh hour with funds to translate Enrique Soria’s chapter on linajudos. Finally, I am indebted once again to William Childers and Marjory Hutcheson for their excellent translations.
