Decade: 1900s
Century: 20th (1901-2000)

El Eprizado de la Inquisition.

According to scholar Or Hasson, “‘El aprezado de la inkizision,’ a Ladino adaptation of a French text, made by a certain ‘Leon’ (no last name), printed in Cairo, 1904. For some reason, the cover reads ‘Cairo/Bombay,’ but the title page only mentions Cairo.

Printing was funded by the Jerusalem-based Solomon Israel Cherezli.”

Avi Gold, “Ladino uses several different scripts. This one is written in Rashi script. Some other Ladino texts are in block print Hebrew characters, and yet others use one of multiple orthographies based on Latin characters.”
