H-Judaic is deeply saddened by the passing of Anita W. Novinsky (1922-2021), Brazil's foremost scholar of the Portuguese inquisition and of early Brazilian Jewry, and longtime professor emerita at the University of Sao Paulo. Prof. Novinsky was honored in her homeland and elsewhere. She is also the author of multiple books, listed on her Wikipedia page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anita_Novinsky).
We extend deepest condolences to her colleagues, students, family and friends.
