AGAINST THE INQUISITION (AMAZONCROSSING) BY MARCOS AGUINIS IS SELECTED AS AN "AMAZON FIRST" TITLE IN AUSTRALIA AND THE UK!
A meticulously researched work of historical fiction, Against the Inquisition is based on the real life of Francisco Maldonado da Silva, a respected, erudite physician in 17th century South America who refused to renounce his Jewish faith, and prevailed in countless debates against the Inquisitors who jailed him over a span of twelve years. Eventually the Inquisitors realized they could never break his spirit. He was burned at the stake, unrepentant, in the infamous Auto de fe in Lima in 1639. Suspenseful, entertaining, inspiring, and timely, this will be the first work of Argentinian bestselling author Marcos Aguinis to be published in English. First published in 1991, La gesta del marrano sold a million copies in Spanish and was translated into German, Hebrew, Japanese, and Portuguese.
