      Abstract

      Jews, Christians and Muslims co-existed more or
      less amicably on the Iberian Peninsula, in what is now Spain, from
      about the eighth to the thirteenth century, a situation often called convivencia (living together).  By the middle of the thirteenth century,
      however, convivencia was breaking
      down, and Jews came under increasing pressure to convert to Christianity: in
      1391 a pogrom throughout Spain fatally weakened the Jewish communities there;
      in 1492 King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, whose marriage united the two
      largest kingdoms of the peninsula into Spain, required Jews to convert to
      Christianity or leave the newly unified country.

      The eventual destruction
      of Judaism in Spain
      may give the impression of the inevitability of Jewish disappearance from the
      region, but it was anything but inevitable.
      Jews did not sit idly by and wait for the dissolution of their
      communities through conversion.  They no
      doubt assumed that this was simply another threat to Jewish survival, and they
      employed resistance tactics that had worked before.  This essay examines some of the tactics that
      Jews in the Kingdom of Aragon, now northern Spain, used to resist conversion to
      Christianity.  These tactics included
      various sorts of polemical writings, appeal to support from the king and
      attempts to rejudaize converts, that
      is, bring them back to Judaism.  The Jews
      eventually failed, but between the mid-thirteenth and mid-fourteenth centuries
      they had no reason to expect failure, and their tactics indicate a community
      concerned but far from defeated.
