About this product
- DescriptionTells the story of Jacob Eliacin, a Jew, during the Spanish Inquisition. Eliacin masquerades as a Christian and becomes a prominent member of the court at Seville, but his background is revealed following his daughter's seduction at the hands of Don Juan. These dramas highlight the discrimination not only of Sejour's time, but of ours as well.
