What happened to the Jewish community in Spain in 1492 CE?. Religious Studies

Jewish culture and scholarship flourished in Muslim Spain, although occasionally Jews would be forced to flee for other territories due to same intolerant rulers.

In the Christian dominated world, Jews were often made victims of persecution, blamed for the murder of Jesus and for not accepting Jesus as Jewish Masiah.

In 1492, when Christian rulers took control of Spain, all Jews were forced to leave. Jews who had converted to Christianity and remained in Spain suffered persecution under the Spanish Inquisition, an arm of the Roman Catholic church with the mission of uncovering heretics( false believers) in the Christian community.
