SEPHARDIC JEWS.

Due to the Spanish Inquisition many Jews were expelled from Spain or forced to Convert. Some may find this link below interesting if you have ever wondered about the origins of your Surname. The Spanish Government has agreed to offer Citizenship to those who can prove they are descendants of Sephardic Jews. The Link below is one of many which can be found by doing a bit of research...

What was Spain called in Bible times?
Sepharad
I didn't know a lot of the Jewish expulsion or conversion was around 1492
Your link may say this - but not many click on links, so I'm told.

Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles.
Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. ~Paramahansa's Guru's Guru

Yes Sepharad, mentioned in the Book of Obadiah (1: 20). I know some do not like to click on Links that's why I said to search around if interested...
It did started in 1492 and ended in 1834 when Queen regent María Cristina de Borbón issued a decree abolishing the Spanish Inquisition.

Just a little snippet of info: that could be of interest. Santa Teresa de Avila's Family were Conversos (Converts).....

Ah, I see her paternal grandfather was indeed Jewish...her mother raised her as a Christian, it says online ---it did not say Catholic, per se.
To note for others, she was a 16c person.
Her grandfather may have done this in the 1400s.

I've just remembered St John of the Cross and St John of Avila also came from converso families.
