Ibn Vives, Juan

Resource Toolbox

Grandson of one of the richest Jews of Valencia, and one of the most influential and respected of the citizens of that city. In 1510, at an auto da fé held in Valencia, he was condemned for Judaizing, and his houses, which were located in the district which had formerly been the Juderia, were torn down. Luis Vives, the many-sided scholar, was one of his relatives, and in order to avoid all suspicion of unbelief, wrote his "De Veritate Fidei Christianæ ," attacking Judaism (Rios, "Hist." 1:14).
