The Sephardi Heritage Project

The 1680 Madrid Auto-da-Fé

Zoom Seminar – Sunday 10th May 2020

Thank you to everyone who made our first seminar such a success, and especially thank you to our six new patrons. Our first goal is to achieve $100/month so that we can afford to use Zoom's more advanced features, and break-even on our costs. If you want to become a patron, please sign up at:

Our second seminar will look at the 1680 Madrid auto-da-fé. An auto-da-fé was the event at which the Inquisition announced prisoners' sentences.1680 was the last great Spanish auto-da-fé and happened at a key turning point in European and Sephardic history.

The seminar will be on Sunday at 21:00 Israel time; 20:00 Paris/Amsterdam time; 19:00 London time; 14:00 EST; and 11:00 PT.
