Frequently reproduced because of its visual attraction, the colourful cuenca amulet cannot be understood without the rest of the Inquisition fle of which it is an integral part. the unpublished testimony accompanying the amulet, preserved at the archivo dioc-esano de cuenca, is presented here. an attempt is made to tackle the problems it raises: identifcation of the individuals mentioned in it; state of Hebraism ca. 1496; questions of text and image; knowledge of Judaism amongst conversos; particular quality of archival evidence in contrast with most Jewish amulets which lack date or place.
