The expulsion was an event that radically changed the perspectives of the Iberian conversos. The halakhic authorities were confronted with an absolutely new situation, in which they had to reformulate their position towards the conversos. This volume presents all the responsa written in connection with conversos by Isaac b. Sheshet Perfet, Simeon b. ?ema? Duran and his descendants: Solomon b. Simeon Duran, ?ema? b. Solomon Duran and Simeon b. Solomon Duran.
