Lucia Helena Costigan, Ph.D. (1988) in Spanish, University of Pittsburgh, is Associate Professor of Spanish and Luso-Brazilian Literatures and Cultures at the Ohio State University.

"A work brimming with insights and helpful perspectives." Jonathan Schorsch, Hispanic American Historical Review Vol. 91, No. 4 (November 2011) pp. 181-183. This book adds a new dimension to Inquisition studies and historicized analysis of New Christian literature in Latin America and the author does a good job of offering historical contextualization of the literature, some of it published, some of it manuscript and largely forgotten, placed in archives. The book will appeal to colonialists, both historians and literary scholars, and should have some good use in graduate seminars on topics related to colonialism, the Atlantic world and the Inquisition. Martin Nesvig, Bulletin of Spanish Studies, Volume LXXXVIII, No. 4 (June 2011), pp.617-618
