Russell Greg a bunch of times. He was a great in ring performer, and a during his prime. During his heyday he was supposed to be the next big guy, but he was always that top.

It makes sense because it's almost connects the dots boroughs as fans, and yet he had that deal in place, and obviously things would change, and you can never do what he was able to do. In the early eighties, but then Tommy that even the stories with Roddy Piper and he really your holds does feuds. Feuds that had with flair Piper, and while mcdaniel from mid Atlantic dear near and dear to his heart, he talked about watt. Who how much you learned from wattle mcdaniel 'cause he would take a beating inside that ring with Wahoo mcdaniel and made them tough. It really toughened him up, so it made it easier for those long car rides and those matches that he had because being in the ring with. With my wife, who mcdaniel you really took a physical beat, and that's why veterans are so so important to this industry in worth having the ability to not I mean listen. He's a second generation wrestler. He's going to get that information from his father, but then he's also going to be in the ring and experiencing it firsthand with all these different towns i. mean Johnny Valentine Work With Watt will make. And they probably beat the living crap out of control all the time and watt who's knocking to lower his performance for the sun? But that's why Greg, the Hammer Valentine honestly Dave thank you from the seventies to Eighties Bounds. Time was a main event or for the longest time when he held that intercontinental title that was the secondary title to the WWE, and he was a recognized champion for for so long when he broke Jay strewn bows leg when he broke watt. Who mcdaniels like all like every? We still I still associated the figure for with Greg Valentine not really so much. With ric Flair, but to me it was always greg. Valentine of regulate late once you put that thing on you. Yeah! And he talked about ric flair and he said us. You know it wasn't myth. Ric flair truly was like that on the road and he said he cost them a marriage. Cost George Scott. Marriage, you know. right on down the line. That's how crazy ric flair was, and of course his work in the ring. You know the one thing. Greg Valentine said it never compromised the work and the work effort and the work ethic that Rick Flair had in the ring. And then you know the year of the ear as he said the feud with Roddy Piper and they didn't just have that. One dog collar match. You know at Star Arcade there was many of them that they did they did. Did, the whole loop doing those dog collar matches, and he said that Roddy Piper was a genius. He said he was one of the smartest people he knew you know. He learned a lot. Just psychology wise from rowdy. Roddy Piper and Roddy Piper wanted to take those beatings he knew would be good, just a good visual, and make them a lot of money. And he said that one thing he said that that guy truly was a genius absolutely, and that's also listening to the crowd and. Kinda like I WANNA say ad-libbing it out there where you're beating me so much beating me so much and I'll go back to rocky the movies where it's like now, and then that's when he starts blowing neck, and you can just feel that you feel the crowd it's. It's a lost art and you know mid Atlantic. We could be talking about this company for so long. Because of the parallels that had with the deputy with the expansion of that Crockett tried to have. It's sad that it went out of business because it truly did. Change in revolutionize professional wrestling, but I think it's great.

The Hammer Valentine Mr Valentine how are you today? Thank you I'm good now. Thank you and. Listen I. Really appreciate you being a part of this show, because when I think of mid Atlantic championship wrestling I think of you, the great feuds, the feud with Wahoo mcdaniel feud with Roddy Piper feud with ric flair. Did you have a favorite feud when it came to mid Atlantic? Actually. Ma-. They're all way up there on a high level I. Really didn't have a favorite Early, how probably I guess maybe while who mcdaniel. 'cause he. He taught me how to be be. Be Tough, he just beat the hell. Automate until I finally got mad and hitting back and knock him down. Citizens States, and so he made. He made a man out of me so long. Who mcdaniel is way up there on the list. Of course Piper on my God the matches the Piper and I talked about Piper. Get Really Sad And of course Rick flurries still around. We were tight teams champions I think three. There were times we had the world tag championship belts and we had. Harley Long matches Olien Arn Anderson Oh God. They'd be to tell us well at least me anywhere. either. Made this tough. There was little BS factum. No, you're right, and you know you hear the stories about a wok mcdaniel, and unfortunately for you know I think a lot of newer fans don't know about why who mcdaniel He. He truly is kind of one of the most under appreciated wrestlers when you look back at the history, especially at mid Atlantic. He was A. Ex Football player Miami Dolphin New York jets. He was a tough guy. He could run. Dadi run I remember chasing on these outdoor shows the the Carolinas and I. Try Chase Him I. Don't know why you're throwing away from because the baby but. He took off like a deer, and so I really respect it as asked letting the greatest slaves everyone see. for running and stuff and he was two hundred fifty sixty seventy pounds heavy died. This guy was. he never got his shot in New York. But If he were been worried, you go chief Jay strongbow up there. But I mean he never got that shot up there in Minnesota he did. You know where she could've. Wrestled in New York because it seems like Madison Square Garden forever forever as it be the go down as a matter for. For. For us in period. Yeah and you know a lot of people talk about the great you know venues and listen. I'm a Jersey Kid, so you know the meadowlands and obviously massive square garden for me is the maximum is that's where I would see? My monthly cards were in those two venues. You. Look you look at. There's so at the Omni in Atlanta. Reunion Arena in Dallas, and and you're very familiar with the Greensboro. Coliseum. I mean the those venues that definitely needs to be remembered in in the history, a pro wrestling. Corio Greensville, call him still there to raise the roof, I think they re for about three times over the years. But yeah, that was the eighties agreements were calls. Feelings was packed all the time. So you know you can't forget that. By God, that's where the first ever star came out, and it's really the first Albert pro wrestling. On cable where the cable, but this closed circuit close. Before Wrestlemania one. Now, you're right, and that's why when you look back at a lot of territories and you know world class doing shows in stadiums the star cade like you said on. Closed Circuit television you know you know I. Guess with the victors. Come the spoils you know. A lot of people think that Vince McMahon and the WWe created so much of what we see now, but it really goes back to a lot of territories from the.

"Your hosts David Greco and Tommy Dreamer welcome to bust it open, remembering the territory's this week talking mid Atlantic championship wrestling, and doing it with my tag team partner the innovator of violence, the landlord of the House of Hardcore Tommy Dreamer Tommy. How are you? I'm doing great and I've been obsessed with mid Atlantic wrestling ever since I've been watching it on the W network. I watch it religiously I only got to see bits and pieces of it as a kid but man, I am loving studio wrestling for mid Atlantic championship wrestling Tommy. Let me you. How did you discover a mid Atlantic wrestling mid Atlantic came on for my cable television for like two to three weeks and I remember seeing all the stuff that. That I got, you got was off from the rest of the magazines, but I don't know the year, but had come on for like a month and I was totally obsessed. I remember Blackjack Mulligan. There was a bounty on his head. There was a wrestler named enforcer Luciano. Who I've never seen ever since, but he broke a light tube and eight, the glass on television and I was like Oh my God, but this was kind of like eighty S. Early eighties and then just all my information was all from the wrestling magazines until I was able to get it. You know once they of merged, but that early. Crockett promotion that was I. Never got it never got it. Yeah and I didn't see it until later on when it was on, Telemundo were Yugoslav individ- doing play by play but obviously if you're a wrestling fan in the late seventies early eighties, you knew all about mid Atlantic championship wrestling, and and really you know it really hit. It's dry to me in the seventies, but there is a rich history when it comes to the mid Atlantic. Wrestling -solutely from Jim Crockett senior. Senior five founding it, I believe it was like the forties and you know it continued to grow and grow, and it was really a you know, even talk about Ric flair and a lot of the older guys. It was really a tag team based territory where there would have a lot of you know feuds, but they're mainly all kind of like all pan style where you'd have all these stars, but integ- teams. Till you'd their big blow off and it was it was a staple man. It was you know from the only and Gene Anderson or the briscoes or a member Swede. Hanson Rift Rip Hawk. BLACKJACK Mulligan. Man The list goes on and on Ric flair. Ricky steamboat Johnny Valentine, Sweet Ebony diamond when we have rocky Johnson on. He talked about that angle, just so much rich wrestling, history and great weekly television which. Really if you think about a dude, it was it was what two states. It was a little bit of Inter. Inter Virginia to, but it was North Carolina. South. Carolina Virginia, and then it grew. Yeah and you know you mentioned about the rich history in one, thousand, nine, hundred seventy three. Jim Jim Crockett passed away and then Jim. Crockett junior took over the territory, and that's truly when Tommy kind of moved on from being just about tag team wrestling, and it still was great with tag team wrestling, but that's when you really saw. Those individuals come to light, and you know in the mid Seventies. Seventies you mentioned. BLACKJACK Mulligan Rufus R Jones, Y. who mcdaniel who probably the biggest baby face in mid Atlantic in the in the mid seventies, and then the heels, the Avenger of group Bernard Swede Hanson like but why, who mcdaniel would probably be the big baby phase from the mid seventies for mid Atlantic championship wrestling, absolutely a lot of people gave credit to Rick flair coming back from his Airplane, crash and turning heel, and having the blonde hair kind of patterning himself after nature boy Rogers and him, and wow, who's flair, really ignited and pop the territory, and while who was that key baby face, and that was in the seventies, and then after the Wa who flair? Feud ends here. Comes Wahoo and Greg Valentine, but watt who wa who was that Go-to guy that the fans just loved? Everyone knows about his toughness. Everybody knows you know former NFL player, but while who was that? Companies top baby face for a long long time. I mean almost. What three decades Yup really, and then you know for me I didn't get to see who mcdaniel until the eighties, and that was near the end of his career, he was wanted the best superstars in the NWF, but if you really go back and watch his work from the early seventies, especially, and how the fans love the Wa who mcdaniel. It's absolutely fantastic. Tommy and And then he was still part of tag team wrestling like you said that was big and mid Atlantic. He tag team with Paul Jones and you had the briscoes you had the Andersons, and you know, and even later on when it came to the young bloods and Ricky steamboat Jay Young. The TAG team wrestling was definitely a big thing in mid. Atlantic, you know. You can go back and if you look at the history of mid Atlantic wrestling like you could see so many wrestlers cutting their teeth. In this territory. You Know Sargent, slaughter. Use ric flair and Ricky steamboat, both have said probably their best matches were when they were feuding in mid Atlantic together that nobody ever saw on television. You know they're part of the NWEA. So you also had for the first half of that Harley race, being the heavyweight champion, and being that you know, go to guy, and then after that segue into ric Flair, being that guy but I mean Bob Morton junior mask, superstar, super destroyer Sir. Oliver Humperdinck in the House of Humperdinck Dick Slater one man gang early in his career like this dude was in his twenties like early twenties, being a main inventor, Jimmy Valiant everybody had a story line And my personal favorite and I have no clue is not in the hall of fame Bob Coddle leading the call each and every week, and what an amazing storyteller!

"You know is is physical. But it's also there's a psychological component there that you mentioned earlier the their autobiographical work. That is a big part of the study. And we've got a bear in mind that they were writing their autobiographies in a very dangerous time for them was a threat looming at every at every corner. Almost how does that make your work as a historian? I'm sure it does make you work in difficult but to what extent that it's really you know make you treated in in a way. That is more sensitive. Yeah that's the hard thing and this is one of the raging debates in inquisitorial studies. You know if you have a document from the inquisition. How do you read it? And this is one of the great debates of the last fifty years. Do you reject them away? It's appropriate Burger is in general because people tend to you know even when not under threat. They tend to build themselves up an older road. It's never entirely reliable but I feel that in this case it's been more so I came to this project originally from a literary approach albeit very historically grounded. That's the way I was trained. And that gave me a lot of freedom but also concern to read these tax not straight to read them against the grain to realize that people posture that people present themselves in a particular way. This is self fashioning. This is into reporting that that certainly when they present themselves to the inquisitors because in two cases decided mentioned but one of the Great Lux of two of these cases is that we have the to`real trials of Manuel Cardoso. When he's in. Lisbon is two trials because he was arrested twice. And we have Louis Dicara Hall and his family's trials so we have. These records often can play off the way the craft things later on in their autobiography. So there's these kind of this kind of shuttling between the archive and the self fashioning archaeologist. Which lends gives all sorts of interesting but even there you know just because they say something the inquisitors again memory plays tricks and people want to present themselves in a particular way honestly. The hardest one was was Montesinos's because Montesinos who says he meets the tribe of Reuben. It's at me as a modern person. It's it's a fantastic story. I don't understand what happened there and the only way I can read. It is in context with other stories like this so you know when Columbus is trying to make sense of this world he discovers for instance in his diaries so he interprets what the indigenous people are telling him as things such as. Oh in those islands there Amazon's in those islands. There men with tails those under men with dog heads now that was Columbus hearing whatever you wanted to hear from whatever reverend signed the Indians were giving him filtering it through the books he read John Banville. And all these fantastical stories of the Far East and these magical beings and he filters this new crazy world that he can't understand he's filtering it through the books he's read so that's one of the one of the things. I try to do is contextualised them. What what are other books like? What are other spiritual autobiographies like Old Cardoso? How is his similar to what Christians are writing what presence and Catholics are writing? Does it remind it reminds you of some of these other classics Carver Hall? Put IT in context. What other writers you know what other things are floating around in his world that so that's one of the ways I deal with it and I don't take it as as a report and this is in my own thing. I mean so many scholars before me especially in colonial studies people reading Columbus People Rooting. Cortez people reading. You know all the great classic I learned from that and they gave me a path forward. I think on this. You know reading historically but also realizing that these are creations. So we'll have a bit of time for questions from the audience. If anyone's got a question so you say that The Antonio Montesinos was the one that he was the most challenge but Do you think that there is a relation between Antonio the Montesinos and all the Messianic thought of these era and with Serbian Movement because all of them is looking for a reason and to find something that is bringing the messier snow. You're the MESS UNISOM. All say one thing about the Montesinos tax. It's the most problematic also because we don't have the original the text we have is what Manashian Israel says he said so it's mediated upon mediated unmediated. But that's true a lot of texts. There's a scholar Margarita. Some more DR. Who WORKED ON COLUMBUS? Diaries that was one of her. Great explanations use this text as Columbus. She called it a corporate author so even with Montesinos he was a real person. We know we have some indication. He was a real person and that the story circulated that this wasn't made up Menasheh but and I don't impute ill will or kind of evil machinations to any of the people. What I do is the direction you were mentioning. What was going on in the air. Twenty years later shutouts fee is making people crazy in Amsterdam right. These new Jews Amsterdam is my teacher. Kopplin has called them. You know the people who were Catholics come to Amsterdam embrace Judaism when they hear about the Messiah coming and he's a real person you know. This is very exciting to them. This is kind of changing the world but it has earlier permissions. Christians were the first ones interested in Montesinos Story. Christians believed it was a Protestant theologian living in Amsterdam. Who I asked Menasheh. Hey can you tell me more about this guy? And what his story was. Because I have a friend in New England who says he thinks the Indians there are dues. The American Indian the Jewish Indian theory or the Israelite in the in theory was very popular as in European intellectual trying to make sense of. Who are these people? Who are these divers very different people? The Bible never said anything about them. How DO THEY FIT? The Bible. Didn't say anything but these continents. How DOES THAT FIT? And this is part of this whole like amazing intellectual revolution. That comes along the same time as you were talking earlier about modernisation stuff like that the printing press where like tons of information can go very quickly around the world people travelling people discovering new things so the Indians. They didn't understand for your find the box for them. We'll who are they? How do we figure them out? So one theory wasn't the only theory one theory was. Oh maybe they're the law the ten tribes and that could explain why they're so terrible that can explain why you know they'd have soy dollar trysts because the ten tribes Riveria dodgers and explain why they're like this can explain why they're so noble and whatever you can you can always use it for whatever you want so yeah hundred years before. Montesinos's we have divide Rubini right a Jew who shows up in Italy saying I from the tribe of Reuben. My brother is the king and I'm on a mission to get the pope to band together with us against the Muslims and take back the Holy Land. That was a real person. He was imprisoned and killed eventually but he had a run. He made it. He was a celebrity for a long time. The story of Prester John. The Portuguese send a real embassy. They send real people to the heart of Africa to find Prester John so these are fantasies. But they're real. I mean people act on them so I see him in that Tex but also because I care about the that literary piece to it. I'm really interested in how this persona of Antonio the Montesinos where it's going on in his. What's the psychological kind of journey that he's taking as well and that so I care about all that other stuff? I think it's it's essential. You can't understand the text without it but I'm also interested. Well what else is going on? What about the? I see a whole ethical transformation happening in him. Maybe read too much into that but I see it there and so I go there. In a way that very often for instance the indigenous question the question of race is sending comes up all of these tax especially with Montesinos race blood. You know all these things are very important. I find it very strange that someone like Louise to Carbajal. Who writes about so much is living. Among indigenous peoples is assigned after his arrest to teach Latin in premier elite school in Santiago. Lot the local to teach Latin to into kind of the elite of the Indian leads. He never talks about them. He has no important relationships with them. It's interesting to me. That absences is interesting. It says a lot about what does it mean to be part of the colonial structure and Marty you know. And then you have someone like like Montesinos who really grapples or the texts. At least I would say the tax grapples with race and grapples with an and raises raises. Some of these issues doesn't resolve them. Certainly but certainly yeah all right Professor Peretti's thank you very much for joining us today..

"Forces forcibly convert. Them all gives them twenty years which was then extended through bribery and to forty years without inquisition so for forty years the former Jews of Portugal who now converse those of Portugal New Christians of Portugal. Another term that was used for them. Are Catholics at home? No one looked at what happened. That's in the sixteen fourteen ninety seven so sorry so fourteen ninety seven till the fifteen thirty S. And if you look you see that when do the Jews? When did the former Jews now converse owes of Portugal start really streaming out of Portugal? They don't do it right away. I mean some do. I'm sorry there are some people who very principally religious reasons as soon as they can escape. Portugal. After being forced to be converted. We have many cases of this famous cases. But they're a minority right people. Who but in the Fifteenth Thirties? The gazillion starts working in Portugal. And that's when we see people leaving some do their best to get to places like Italy where they can be openly Jewish but most dome most stay in the Iberian world but the Iberian World. That point is very big. The world include the Netherlands which were Catholic. Which we're you couldn't be openly Jewish but we're the musician didn't work. The same way they could go to Seville. Diet is the heartland of the inquisition. Isn't it and yet. It isn't because at that point that moment the Spanish position was less. Active was more was kind of freaking out about the Protestants and other sorts of heretics `judaizing situation was less so you see them going to the ports of the Iberian world and they start flooding into the Caribbean and they start going to Brazil and they start going to Africa and India all along these these global routes and they are part of the and the set up through family businesses. Set up these intricate family. Businesses that are transnational to to some extent or certainly global and again are those converse. Oh family businesses hotbeds of Judaism most cases not but it's a convenient way to maintain your social identity which then can get activated as a religious identity depending on an individual's experience. So that's kind of this this network that where people come out against this backdrop. The three protagonists of the book emerge a so first of all let you say the names because pronounce them but tell us briefly about the biographies and why that you think that they are a case in point for that that okay. So I'll just briefly give incredibly briefly okay Louis De carvajal and also the younger was. The CARVAJAL was originally from Spain family. Who followed this path from Spain to Portugal back to Spain so notice that pattern and he had an uncle who followed the classic pattern of a commercial merchant. He does business with a Portuguese converse. Oh businessman in Seville trades in the coast of Africa and Caribbean marries. His daughter again staying inside the CONVERSA- orbit doing converse jobs and then has to change and he goes on this different path and he fights in wars against the Indians in Mexico. He works to get recognized by the crown and given a prize and he takes really the path of the old Christian ideal of coming from the years of the Spanish reconquista the wars against the Muslim Spain where the ideal that you'll Christian value was to fight honorably against the infidel and then be rewarded with lands and to live off your land right to enter into business was seen as a as a dirty endeavor. I've seen no one wants to be poor in a peasant but at least they're clean right in that sense or you could go to the church. Obviously the churches are very nice thing to do but not for everyone so the ideal for the non-clergy was to be Christian Warrior against the infidel. Once it was finished against the Muslims you have a whole continent now of Indians to fight. And so that he kind of goes on that path he goes on that path he gets rewarded with being the governor of a kind of godforsaken part of Mexico the northern part of Mexico in wiggled. Rano the lien which is where a Modern Day. Mar Monterey is in the north of Mexico. A lot of desert a lot of swamps and some very rich silver mines and some very violent marauding nomadic Indian tribes knows that you make us and so he needs people to come and he invites his family and he brings his family and he himself seems to be a devout Catholic. His family is a mix. It's a weird mix and either. He turned a blind eye. He was willfully you know either willfully or he hoped that his it's unclear and that part of the story and it's part of the exciting part of the story but he brings them over and he names this louis-jakarta uh-huh also looks at how the younger as his right. Hand man who he because he doesn't have children and he hopes to kind of be able to pass it on but life has a way of surprising you and that's what happens to his family. It turns out that there `judaizing activities or Crypto Judaic activities. They're they're they're secret said Irene email and their secret chabad experiences and they're they're all their beliefs and and come out because they try to include someone who they assume would be part of the Group A converse owes somewhat related to them. One of the sisters who is a little bit not discreet about her. Judaism reaches out to this guy and he freaks out and turn them into the inquisition and that that gets the family into the network the net of the inquisition. But we've lived in Mecca in. Mexico was a very prolific writer and eventually died at the stake after his second arrest by the inquisition. Fifty Ninety six and we have his autobiography which is kind of amazing taxes. The only tax it I know of I I still haven't found one text. I know of Crypto Jew who writes about their experience while living under the inquisition. So we have a few people write about their experience. They've come to the lands of safety the Lens of Liberty or the Lens of Judaism as they call them. But he's the only one that I know of that. Talks about being a crypto Jew while living crypto Jew underneath inquisition which is which is what gets them killed partially right ultimately so that's always the call and he's probably the most studied of all the three that I look at starting already in the thirties. Toro Martin Cohen in the sixties and Seventies. Miriam Bowed Ian these some many many great scholars before we've analyzed his work and his life and his family's history from many angles in Mexico. The families is a known historical entity. Diego Rivera includes Mariana Carver Hall in an being burnt at the stake in one of his murals in in in the the National Palace. So you know there are bigger. And so that's how and then I go to a very different sort of person until near the Montesinos otherwise known as our own Levy who was a Portuguese converse. Oh who spent time in the Americas as a merchant gets copy the inquisition gets let off because they don't have enough evidence but in prison has this revelation that the Indians that were as porters in the Andes were Jewish and that he has to find get to the root of the story and so he tells the story of finding them again and going on a journey where he where. He encounters the tribe of Reuben living in the Andes with a very. They have a very important messianic message for him. To give to the rest of the Jews. He goes to Amsterdam where there was an open. Jewish community shares this message and a few years later this tax gets placed as part of Manashian Israel. The Great Amsterdam Rabbis Book McVeigh's rail or Esperanza these trial which is a book all about the ten tribes in the question of the Messiah. And when they're coming and it's kind of a tour to force and kind of anthropology but it's it's amazing but includes this testimony of our Levy Montesinos there and then the last is monroe does Macedo. Who's a a old Christian? In other words no Judaism? In his background old Christian from the stores the island northern Portuguese islands in the North Atlantic who first embraces calvinism while living in England as a student and then he is arrested by position on a family trip home in prison by -sition for being a Calvin Est he meets Jew or someone who's accused of `Judaizing who blows his mind by hearing that people because the accusations against him where things like keeping Saturday as the Sabbath and avoiding this and avoiding that and him as a Good Bible. Reading Calvin was amazed that people who still kept these rules and it got him thinking. Maybe I was wrong. All these years. It's really Judaism and eventually he goes on to find his way to Judaism and makes his way to Amsterdam where he writes. A very stirring autobiography that was preserved in the library and studied by Bernard Teams in the in the seventies and was mentioned here by different scholars. But again to to just to fall back to your question. What are these have to do with each other? These are really different stories. These are different people in you know and the way that they connect first of all they're autobiographies autobiographical works there about the about these individuals writing about their lives. They're linked by experiences of CRYPTO Judaism. Even in the case of Manuel Cardoso is an old Christian who becomes a calvinist. He has been very pivotal period while he is living in Lisbon after being released inquisition where he lives with converse. As a crypto Jew. You know he didn't convert yet. Officially right so crypto Judaism links them and this Atlantic world. These are all people who are linked are part of this incredibly interesting bizarre violent Atlantic network that links them and the thing that I finally saw that really links them thematically and and in terms of experience and is the Lens that are used to talk about their experiences and also. It's the Lens that allows me to go. Outwards is the role of family as an organizing principle in their autobiographies the importance of family as an idea of what I call spiritual families or families of faith and blood families or biological families. We'll see a logical families right so you can be a spiritual brother to someone who has nothing to do with your bloodline nothing with your ethnicity. Lewis Carvel Hall. One of his closest closest spiritual brothers is a monk and old Christian monk who he meets in prison and who embraces Judaism and. He writes about him as you know as a blood brother but yet he has a brother a real brother spar who is a Dominican whose monastery is across the street from the inquisition and so he has an uncle who's named out. Who has the same name who is a devout Catholic right so family is complicated? But it's also what links us but it's also what breaks us and so in each case is different vectors of that family. And they're all intertwined with this. Open Ed in this geographic and the ability to travel how to inform each other. Yeah travel is so important and it's a bit cliche and it's very contemporary. You know you go someplace new and you have a different experience and you understand yourself better. These people were all travelling not because they were looking for a religious experience or wanted to find themselves. There were traveling. 'cause they were traveling a lot but travelling changes. You you meet people. These women have met before Manuel Cardoso is sent as a fourteen year old to England because his father does business in England and he wants his son to have context air to apprentice with business partners to learn English. But guess what happens when you go to England. In the early sixteenth century you're going to discover protestantism. And when you're on your own and you're fourteen or fifteen your kid and you may WanNa rebel. You want to try something you want fit in you. Whatever it is and so. He changes his life. And it's very interesting. You see him go back and forth. We can sometimes hide him hide his identity. Something's not hide his identity on its trips back to these oars for instance. But then you have someone like Montesinos the guy who meets these people. He believes where the tribe of Reuben in the Andes. He goes on a real journey. Like a real almost. Like when I say real journey in the almost like new age sense the Indian porter that he originally had this inkling in inside that might be his linked to these to this tribe. He turned him and he says okay. I'm GonNa show you your people. I will bring you to your people after a very tense kind of exchange where they have to kind of like where he has to check him out. Make sure he's for real says I'M GONNA show you them but you're not gonna go like this and you're not going to go like you went in the mountains before where I was your servant and you and I carried your bags. You'RE GONNA leave all this behind. Says you can leave your by SPA. Your Cape and your and your sword. It's like in other words all your Spanish. Nece all your power. All your trappings of who you are. You have to leave that all behind. You'RE GONNA go like you're going to wear rope sandals a brigade us. You're going to carry your own stuff you're gonna eat corn like me and we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA travel together and then you're gonNA see your brothers. So there's the stripping down of his european-ness of his colonial privet even though he's he's this kind of in a very precarious colonial state. He's still better than those Indian porters right. And there's this way that his his role gets inverted and he's dependent on this guy to get access to his people so to speak. And so that that journey again you know is is physical. But it's also there's a psychological component there that you mentioned earlier the their autobiographical work..

"And the Rabbi Arthur Schneier Program for international affairs. I'm your host guide halpern and my guest. Today is associate professor of Sephardic studies. Here Sheva any director of the Schneider Program. His book narratives from the Fatah. Atlantic was published by Indiana University. Press in two thousand seventeen. It is collectively we. All graffiti of three Iberian Crypto Jews in the late sixteenth and early centuries offering sketch of a particular social phenomenon against the backdrop of political upheavals deriving mainly from the opening up of new geographic sel and commercial spaces across the Atlantic professor. Ronnie Pirelli's hello and welcome to the review. Welcome so can you tell us? Briefly about the origins and makeup of Crypto Judaism around the time what it actually meant. It's great question because it doesn't really have an answer. I mean part of it is you know. And even that term is a term which is argued about what the proper term talk about. Who are these people? What does it mean that they're crypto? Jews is at the you know so some people are very strict to always refer to them as converse OHS until they actually leave and become full open. Jews whatever that may look like so we can start with terminology but or we can start with chronology. Depends on how you want to look at it. I like to start in Iberia in Sfar odd and to kind of keep in mind that until one thousand nine hundred eighty two. This is the largest most kind of substantial Jewish community in the world. And that's a big statement. I as a story unlike making examines like that but that that's a pretty fair statement to make terms of numbers in terms of quality of cultural production and status in society. All these different measures you can easily make that argument and this same group. That's been living in the same soil for hundreds of years in thirty nine thousand. One goes through a rupture of tremendous proportions. Are there riots? That breakout throughout the country. And in the wake of those riots there are murders and there are forced conversions and there are people running away and there are people who stay Jewish sometimes by luck. Sometimes because Dr Town didn't have a riot or they got away and time or whatever it may be and that begins this process of separation within Iberian Society where you have people who stay Jewish people who converted in those riots. And they're in the same place they don't really. They often live in the same neighborhood since they. Their families are broken. Apart by these conversions and these these these acts of violence so for one hundred years leading up to what we think of is the end of Jewish life in Iberia for ninety too. You have people who are living side-by-side often families connected to each other through through family relationships business relationships through just living in the same neighborhoods in having those associations who some of them are on a path of of living Catholic lives at least religiously and others are maintaining their Jewish lives like before. But nothing's before because everything has changed right and so that's the beginning and so you have one hundred years of people who converted some of whom want nothing to do with Judaism certainly within a generation or two and others who for a mixture of reasons. We'll have maintain either socioeconomic contact with Jews right. My brother is my business partner and just because I'm Catholic and Jewish. I'm not going to stop talking to him. I'm not going to stop doing business with him. I may go to his house. Friday night is that active religious affiliation for me in my secret. Because I go to my brother's House for Friday night dinner and partake of the Halla and particularly the wind and all that or is that social one step further the converse Os as they were known. Were accused of not being good Catholics. One of the things that prominent theologians historians would save even their food the Jewish food. They little dishes cooked in olive oil. With a lot of garlic and eggplants. They described these dishes than they sound. Quite good but they avoid pork so these are things a theological thing too like olive. Oil Garlic eggplant. That's cooked in olive oil. But it's a marker that you're still connected to that community and so you know but more importantly I think for most of their of what became known as the old Christians surrounding them. These people were seen as not really one of them because they stayed in the same businesses as before. They kept a similar marriage. Patterns can't marrying their children off at earlier ages than Catholics and marrying them off to business partners that were often other converse and and family members of quite honestly so the maintained this kind of socioeconomic Jewish reality while going to church sending their children into the clergy sometimes and making their way into General Catholic society. And so there's this weird situation where you have people who are seen by the outside as not fully Catholic. They themselves for the most part. Don't do anything in terms of Jewish religion. But because they're seen in this way they're kind of in the socioeconomic and Cultural Inbetween status that doesn't allow them to fully assimilate now among that people especially while they're still open Jews around. You have people who do secretly maintain some religious ties and so those you could call crypto Jews often called Merano's seeming of these different terms for them right people who are living one way but secretly harbors some whether it's a series of beliefs that are counter Christianity or some some vestiges of religious practices avoidance of certain foods or whatever it is and so that kind of their Judaism which after the expulsion takes on a whole other judiciary. Yeah I interestingly. It seems like it's really the beginning of cultural modernity in the way the two you know people perceive themselves and their identity and participation in public life just at the same time that all sorts of other forms of modernity in terms of technology and capitalism you know commercial aspect of it is beginning to emerge. It's not just a coincidence right. It's like a lot of people. A lot of people look at Spain. You know as this kind of harboring or for the modern nation state and the imperial nation European imperial colonial project. There are the first great you know. Imperial power with huge colonies even such little things like the colonization of islands like Madeira and the Canary Islands. These are these small islands off the coast of Spain which had very few inhabitants. Who were those who were there? Were quickly decimated an enslaved. And it's there that we still have the first plantations the first sugar plantation. Right sugar used to be a very small amount of anyone's diet. It was a hard thing to develop to cultivate their at least set up a plantation and they bring in forced labor to work. Those sugar is notoriously difficult crop to grow and that starts in Madeira in the fifteenth century. So the model of what's going to then become this huge plantation society in the in the Americas in Brazil in Cuba in the south of the United States. All these places. That's already starting an embryo in early modern Spain in that cusp of that also the movement to cities right one of the things. That's interesting about this time period. You see it come up in the literature of the time people start moving moving. They move around go. They start flooding Madrid. They start flooding Seville and then they start going to the Americas and they start looking so obviously. Most people don't move ten miles from where they were born. But then you have this other resurgence of people who are hungry looking for opportunities who are just going all over the world. I mean Spanish soldiers in Italy and in the Netherlands fighting you know different imperial wars the Habsburgs people going to the Americas looking for new opportunities. And what you do when you move to those when you leave your little town where everyone knew everything about you. When you do that you can start a new. No one has to know where you are and for Converse Os just becomes very attractive because in my town everyone knows that my grandfather converted and everyone knows that maybe he got in trouble with musician and everyone knows everyone knows everything about me. But when I go to Seville I can change my name. Who's GonNa Know Me? Why am I can be a new person? That all the stigmas from the Paris lose their way for someone who's interested in a maintaining Judaism secretly so for that subset of people. That's also exciting. Because you can change your name you can. People don't know who you are but also you couldn't paradoxically you don't WanNa be alone especially if you're part of this group and you're going to look for people in your circle. So if you go to Seville Seville was the official. Port to the Americas. You'RE GONNA find a lot of people international trade and those people in national trade very likely maybe your family members or maybe someone who you know from your town. Then you can find yourself in a network there so the search for socio-economic sustenance and connections. You know we'll connect converses to each other but will also make them a target for extraterrestrial vestich. It's so in some way around the Clintons some way. Not this false. Conversion is what really propelled the Jews into participation in the larger in the broader activity of the state of the market. You could argue. Maybe I mean to other places. Yes yes I mean. Look it coincides. Jews in the earlier mediaeval period in the Islamic when Islam- was more and more prominent in Spain kind of like the Golden Age. We know the Jews were highly involved in international trade go from the constant movement from Spain to the Far East India. Going all over the place. That kind of dies down in Spain. The Jews in Spain after the Christian reconquest of most Muslim territory by the thirteenth fourteenth century are very localized. They're businessmen. They're still merchants or but they're much more localized. This changes with the fifteenth century. And what really happens is really Portugal and that's an important piece of hi Michelle me. Liberal heart was one of the great stories of this phenomenon and in one of his most important books he goes out of his way to explain the importance of Portugal. And that's the thing I left out in that quick history. Which is that the biggest block of Jews who wanted to stay Jewish? The biggest blocked went to Portugal in fourteen ninety two so they go to Portugal and in Portugal. They fill the ranks of merchants everything from very low level merchants moving material over from the border from Spain into Portugal along the routes over the mountains and places like Brigham. Which is this little. Today is little town as they say you know where the devil has lost his way in the middle of nowhere but in the fifteen sixteen seventeen century was a central area for this really localized trade right and then obviously places like Lisbon and Porto which were centers of international trade beginning in the fifteenth century. That's what people don't under- people don't appreciate everybody. All think of Columbus. He Changed Everything but already the Portuguese in the fifteenth century. Were going down the coast of Africa. They were very close to getting to indy on their own and because of the way society was set up in Portugal. There were not enough people who wanted to be in that middle class of merchants. Plenty of people who wanted to collect the rents off the boats that were coming in and sell the licenses to buy and sell slaves and gold and all that but there were much fewer people who were willing and able and have the skills and how the networks and had necessity to risk going into these economic economic middleman status and the juice fit that very well in Portugal. There was a ready need for these types of people and they became known as as men of the nation. Slash men of business. That was the that was the term that with the Portuguese use for them. Five years later the king of Portugal needs to marry off his son to the daughter of Isabella. Who will have nothing with a monarch who who will have you know have heretics and infidels living in his country so he has a problem? He can't get rid of his Jews. Jews are the business class. I mean it sounds like a cliche. It sounds like the protocols designed or something but it actually. They were filling that role. Not Exclusively were obviously cushioned. Christians were in that role but overwhelming majority. Were so he to make a very long story. Short.

"Of air travel in the US later this week aside from the possibility of disrupting flights at airports along the coast Florence could also disrupt flights in interior cities, depending how the storm tracks after coming ashore already. Big airlines have enacted a flexible re booking policy for flyers ticketed airports likely to be in Florence's path more on what you should know if you're flying this week from Ben Matza airline reporter at USA today and author of a blog called today in the sky, Ben help us out. There are two things that I think are really important. I there is still some uncertainty to the storm track. But it really does look like this storm is going to menace the mid Atlantic and southeast coast. And if that happens there will be a disruption to flights. It's impossible to say exactly what airports will be affected. And whether you're flight will be cancelled specifically. But I think it's a pretty good bet that once you get toward the end of the week they Thursday or Friday, you're flying to the south east or through the southeast. You may want to make some other plans. And that's where the waiver might come in handy. All right. So as fliers what kind of rights, do we have or what kind of muscle might we be able to flex? It's quite roll out of people. But when an airline Campbell the flight, the only thing that you're technically allowed to get in return is a refund now that that obviously especially for situation like a tropical storm or hurricane like, we're going to have here in the south East Airlines are motivated to try to get you on your way. So what I would do is if you're flying through one right now Charlotte looks like it's going to be the. Up to see the biggest impact assuming that the track days the way they that too. So if you're flying day from the northeast to LA or wherever Charlotte, call American they've just added a flexible revoking policy that will allow you to move your flight either to a different hub or or two different days. You can avoid the worst of the storm. We've also heard from a lot of people are trying to get to North Carolina. So they can safeguard the property. So there are a lot of people were really trying to to travel schedule. I think if you're there on vacation, this is a good time to get out. Most of these flexible revoking policies again on the thirteenth for the twelve. So you could play up, but maybe tried to get out a little bit earlier. We're speaking with Ben Matza from USA today airline reporter also writes, the today in the sky blog, we're talking about preparations for your flight plans ahead of hurricane Florence. It's possible to I guess that there just might not be enough. Seats on departing planes to get everybody out that wants to get out. Now that is absolutely a concern at I think, you're the good news is we still see a couple of days before four and is expected to make landfall. So this does give some people I wouldn't pay a lot of time, but sometimes of scramble for a new option, but you have a story you can change your plan better off you're going to be because there aren't a lot of empty seats. These days you act your chance of finding the last one if you are in that situation, and you can't. One of the feet consider some alternatives. Maybe there's an airport nearby. You can drive to catch a flight out of bear. There might be a pain. But given the alternative it's worth considering the airline should be flexible with you on that. But you just never know depend on the person you're talking to. But this is really the time to think about trying to get that left empty seat. And if for some reason that doesn't work out what kind of alternate. If you're a Myrtle Beach. Can you drive your Columbia, South Carolina, where there might be some more seats available or whenever nearby airport? And does it actually make sense to us? More sugar than vinegar when you're talking with folks on the phone like does that matter if you're trying to revoke? It certainly does that mean keep in mind that whether or not you think the person who's doing a good job, helping you're not bear the person who can help they're the they're the caretakers of you getting that new flight. So it'd be nice if you can, you know, the other golden rule that I've always said, especially when it comes to dealing with customers over the phone, if if you're just not making a lot of headway with the person, you're on the phone with. And you think that there's something better that can be done say. Thank you. Okay. I'll try something hang up the phone. Call back sometimes just getting up. Kirkman to help.
