The Maranos, under Juan de la Cibdad, opposed the mob, but were repulsed and, with their leader, were hanged by the feet.
On April 17, 1506, several Maranos were discovered who had in their possession "some lambs and poultry prepared according to Jewish custom; also unleavened bread and bitter herbs according to the regulations for the Passover, which festival they celebrated far into the night." Several of them were seized, but were released after a few days.
On the same day on which the Maranos were liberated, the Dominicans displayed in a side-chapel of their church, where several Neo-Christians were present, a crucifix and a reliquary in glass from which a peculiar light issued.

The editor of "Liberty Bell" noticed the discrepancy between the spelling of 'Maranos' in my quotation from the Jewish encyclopaedia on p.7 of the June issue and the form 'Marranos' in my comments and in a quotation from a later Jewish compilation.
They accordingly spelled it 'Marano,' as in the scholarly "Jewish Encyclopaedia" published in 1901-1906, and derived it from some fanciful etymon, most frequently a Hebrew term meaning 'in appearance only' or the term "maranatha" found in the "New Testament" and of uncertain meaning.
The Jews in Spain who thus sensibly refrained from Jewish rites were, of course, damned from the orthodox Jewish point of view, even though many or most of them worked for the eventual triumph of their race over the hated "goyim," whom they had ostensibly joined.

Spinoza was banished from Amsterdam, and to avoid assassination, after "a fanatic made an attempt on his life with a knife," he left his native city where the "curses had been pronounced upon him" by the rabbis in their leading Synagogue.
Yet these Rabbis, who belonged to the Amsterdam community that was started by the Maranos (the pretended-to-be-Catholics), who cursed the Catholic Church and Spain for the deportation of their forbears, deemed it legitimate to curse, scourge, excommunicate, and drive from Amsterdam those of their fellow-Israelites who were guilty of heresy.
Remember that the Maranos were the fifth columnists of the fifteenth century.

The Jews of Italy fared better during the same period, owing to the fact that the flourishing republics of Venice, Florence, Genoa, and Pisa appreciated and needed them as capitalists and diplomatists; and it is worthy of notice that the Italian Jews were very prompt in availing themselves of the newly invented art of typography.
In Ferrara and Florence, Jews and Maranos were well treated by the respective rulers of these cities; and even in Venice, which considered the expediency of their expulsion lest their presence should injure the interest of native merchants, they were simply confined to the first Italian Ghetto (1516).
Under Selim II (1566-1574), the Marano Joseph Nassi, become Duke of Naxos and the virtual ruler of Turkey, used his immense power and wealth for the benefit of his coreligionists, at home and abroad.

The pleasant story that it was Queen Isabella's jewels which financed the voyage has disappeared under cool research.
There were three Maranos or "secret Jews" who wielded great influence at the Spanish court: Luis de Santagel, who was an important merchant of Valencia and who was "farmer" of the royal taxes; his relative, Gabriel Sanchez, who was the royal treasurer; and their friend, the royal chamberlain, Juan Cabrero.
These worked unceasingly on Queen Isabella's imagination, picturing to her the depletion of the royal treasury and the likelihood of Columbus discovering the fabulous gold of the Indies, until the Queen was ready to offer her jewels in pawn for the funds.

Many professed conversion but secretly practised their old religion, and the inquisition long directed its operations against these " Maranos." Equal sternness was manifested against all others who were mistrusted of lack of fidelity to the Church.
Naturally Torquemada's name became a byword among opponents of the inquisition, and stood for fanatical persecution.

I've heard this statement many times, from many people, but when I look through a Spanish-English dictionary, I find that there is no such word as "Maranos" (or other variant spelling), and the word for "pig" is "cerdo" - which is completely different.
Thinking it might be Latin (after all, this was a Church-run country at the time), I tried an on-line Latin dictionary.
which defined the word as: an SUFFIX -an, -ain; of, pertaining/belonging to; connected with; derived/coming from maran.os ADJ 1 1 ACC P M POS mas, maris male (human/animal/plant); man; maran.os ADJ 1 1 ACC P M POS mare, maris sea; sea water; Again, no references to pigs.
