Esperanza Cortes: Purity of Blood

Artsy Exclusive – View here
November – December, 2022

Purity of Blood or “Limpieza de Sangre” refers to a concept of racial ideology with its origins in Early Modern Spain. In this historical context, the concern for “purity” was predicated on the biased belief that the unfaithfulness of the “deicide Jews,” (god-killing Jews) had not only endured in those who converted to Catholicism but also had been transmitted by blood to their Christian descendants. Consequently, Old Christians “of pure blood” were demarcated from the New Christians and their Jewish antecedents, who were deemed morally inadequate. This judgment of purity was primarily applied to the politically and economically influential group of Iberian conversos (Catholics of Jewish origins) but was extended also to moriscos (Catholics of Muslim lineage). “Limpieza de Sangre” also came to form part of the ideological basis of the caste system in colonized Colombia and New Spain.
