Itinéraires des nouveaux chrétiens à Lima. Le procès de Manuel Bautista Pérez et la « grande complicité » (1635-1639)

Abstract : In the crypto-Jewish community of 17th century Lima, in the process of being integrated but culturally and religiously impoverished, the outstanding personality of Manuel Bautista Pérez showed signs of both great success and great vulnerability. He was Jewish on one side, as community solidarity turned into trade power, and was part of the dominating values and mores that tended towards a strong social rise ; at the same time, he suffered from the tensions within the newly Christianized Portuguese group. The choice of suicide when faced with the archetypal peninsular institution, outlines the first features of an American identity already trying to find some independence, away from the norms set by the colonizing power.
