Fourteen Jewish Converts on Trial

Fourteen conversos, Jews who had converted to Christianity, are put on trial and deprived of their public offices because they are accused of not having truly converted and instead have held on to their traditional Jewish beliefs and practices. In the aftermath of this, Toledo bans Jewish converts from any government office.

In 1547, the archbishop of Toledo will ban Jewish converts from various forms of assistance that the archdiocese provides to Catholics.
