This is the sixth video that will discuss my work on Crypto-Judaism. The first book in a four-volume series is titled Secret Jews: The Complex Identity of Crypto-Jews and Crypto-Judaism. This six video briefly discusses two topics.
The first is the concept of Taqqiya (Dissimulation) in Islam and its potential impact on Iberian Jews. The second is the topic of Kabbalah and its possible effect on martyrdom.
