The rich collection of the Central Archives for the History of Jewish People in Jerusalem includes microfilms of the
Inquisition in Portugal that began after 1497 where many Jews, expelled from Spain, thought they had found some rest
in that neighboring country.

against converted Jews accused of practicing Judaism. Among these 514 tried Conversos, were 225 women and 277 men.
