First published in Portuguese in 1969, this is the only work by Antonio Jose Saraiva available in English and the only single-volume history devoted primarily to the working of the Portuguese Inquisition, a most lucid and compact survey. "The Marrano Factory" argues that the Portuguese Inquisition s stated intention of extirpating heresies and purifying Portuguese Catholicism was a monumental hoax; the true purpose of the Holy Office was the fabrication rather than the destruction of "Judaizers."

The present collection echoes and contributes to a number of the issues defined by both the traditional and revisionist historiography. The intent of this special issue of the Portuguese Studies Review was to highlight some of the new research on late medieval and early modern Portuguese women, subjects typically situated outside of the academic mainstream, and to complement the four major collections on the history of Portuguese women published since 1986, as well as the larger literature dealing with Spain. The essays are organized into six general themes: “Female Characters in Late Medieval Chronicles,” “Women and Power in the Late Middle Ages,” “Habsburg Queens and Portugal,” “Women and the Economy,” “Attitudes Toward Women,” and “Women and Religion.” The volume presents essays by Amélia P. Hutchinson, José Valente, Jutta Sperling, Ivana Elbl, Susannah C. Humble Ferreira, Félix Labrador Arroyo, Annemarie Jordan, Almudena Pérez de Tudela, Amélia Polónia, Amândio Jorge Morais Barros, Darlene Abreu-Ferreira, Pedor Miguel Reboredo Marques, Marcia Eliane Alves de Souza e Mello, Jessiva V. Roitman, Inês Amorim, Elisbete de Jesus and Célia Rego, and Haruko Nawata Ward, with an Introduction by Darlene Abreu-Ferreira and Ivana Elbl. The volume also contains an Addendum on the Portuguese Estado Novo, with studies by Sonny B. Davis and Antonio Muñoz Sánchez.

L'étude des rapports entre l'Asie - et notamment les créolités lusoasiatiques - et les mondes lusophones reste largement à défricher. Selon une idée répandue, les communautés luso-asiatiques seraient en voie de disparition. Pourtant, la naissance très prochaine d'un nouvel Etat indépendant, de langue officielle portugaise, à Timor Loro Sae, semble montrer le contraire. Mais ce domaine de recherche a subi les conséquences d'idées préconçues. L'étude impose donc d'aller au-delà des mythes, qu'ils nient cette prégnance historique, ou à l'inverse la magnifient par l'évocation obsessionnelle des Grandes Découvertes. La question du statut social de la langue est fondamentale pour comprendre le rapport à l'identité. Les contextes historiques, économiques et politiques, expliquent pourquoi le portugais (ou un luso-créole) peut disparaître à Goa et à Macao, mais se maintenir à Malacca, Sri Lanka ou Timor. Ils expliquent pourquoi des Asiatiques, au cœur du Bengale, continuent à se dire " portugais " ou pourquoi la petite communauté luso-malaise de Malacca reste bien vivante et revendique ses droits politiques. Enfin des communautés asiatiques anciennement " portugaises ", pourtant dispersées sur toute la terre et aujourd'hui non lusophones, continuent à ressentir un vif particularisme : il passe donc par d'autres biais que la langue, comme ceux de la religion, de la culture matérielle, de la cuisine.... comme le montre la diaspora goanaise. Par ailleurs, dès le XIXème siècle, il y a eu des communautés luso-asiatiques nombreuses dans les pays de langue portugaise (Indiens et Chinois au Mozambique ; Indiens au Portugal ; Macanais, Chinois, japonais et Coréens au Brésil ... ). Toutes ces aires d'intersection dessinent une nouvelle géopolitique culturelle que l'on ne peut plus ignorer, à l'heure où la dernière colonie portugaise d'Asie, Macao, est repassée sous souveraineté chinoise.

História da Profissão Docente no Brasil e em Portugal compartilha resultados de uma investigação desenvolvida por pesquisadores brasileiros e portugueses interessados em compreender como a profissão docente foi se estruturando numa perspectiva de longa duração - desde o século XVIII, quando se constituiu o sistema nacional de ensino implantado pelo Estado português em todo o reino, até chegar a questões da profissão na atualidade. Abrange diferentes fatores associados ao tema, tais como o estudo da circulação de saberes e da apropriação de produtos culturais pelos docentes a análise de políticas oficiais dirigidas ao magistério a observação de diferentes formas de manifestação dessa categoria profissional diante das exigências postas ao exercício de seu ofício e as representações sociais que interferiram e ainda interferem na constituição de uma identidade docente específica.
