Title
Diego Duarte II (1612-1691): a **converso**' experience in seventeenth-century Antwerp
Author
Abstract
From the early sixteenth century onward, many conversos or New Christians left Spain and Portugal and went to Antwerp. One member of the converso community in Antwerp was Diego Duarte ii (16121691). Diego Duarte ran a thriving jewel business and had a large commercial network. He was also a highly cultured man, who forged many friendships through his love for music and paintings. Antwerp was, however, still off-limits for Jews. This article seeks to explore Diegos professional, religious and, in particular, his artistic background seen against the place and time in which he lived. I would like to express my thanks to Rudolf Rasch for answering my many questions and to Lea Janssens for her numerous suggestions and discussing an early draft of this article with me. I would also like to thank Kenneth Stow for his many suggestions.
