The anonymous Spanish dialogue between a Flemish proselyte to Judaism and his Catholic brother in Marrakesh is a forgotten classic of Jewish clandestine literature. This edition retrieves the 1583 text, identifies its author Estêvão Dias and follows his cross-confessional wanderings.

Review
"The Marrakesh Dialogues has been mentioned only rarely in the scholarly literature, and Wilke's edition and extended discussion constitute the first attempt at editing the text based upon all the textual evidence, placing it into its historical context, identifying the author and the dramatis personae of the text, analysing the treatise's contents, and presenting it to a wide audience. He is successful because of his broad knowledge of the political and religious trends in early modern Europe, coupled with close familiarity with converso life and literature." -Daniel L. Lasker (Ben-Gurion University of the Negev), Journal of Jewish Studies Vol. LXVII No. 2, pp. 428-35
