As is well known, there was no family of Jews residing in Nueva Espana that was more persecuted than that of Luis de Carvajal, el Viejo. This emigrant came to the colony accompanied by his sister Francisca and his eight children. All of them were prosecuted, beginning with Isabel, the eldest of the daughters, and their imprisonment gave rise to numerous complaints, not only of friendly people, but of several of the closest relatives of the unfortunate family. The procedures of the Holy Office whose main means of investigation was the torment, forcing the children to testify against the parents, the parents against the children, brothers against brothers and spouses among themselves. Luis de Carvajal el Mozo remains the most prominent of those among the victims sacrificed in the cleansing, for religious reasons. Everything makes this interesting: his youth, his domestic virtues flourished in the love he professed to his mother and brothers, his culture, which allowed him to handle Castilian like any good writer of his time, and teach Latin to the Indians of Santiago Tlaltelolco during his seclusion, and finally, the assault undeserved a the end of his life.
