3) Several years ago, Yerushalmi's student David N. Myers wrote a wonderful piece for Tablet on Yerushalmi's life accomplishments in the field of Jewish history, entitled "Freud and the Marranos: How Yosef H. Yerushalmi Gave Voice to Jews Caught Between Worlds." Read it here.

4) Prof. Israel Ta-Shma pieced together a summary of the various relevant issues that were treated in teshuvot with regards to Marranos, entitled Ma'amad HaAnusim LeOr HaHalakhah. Read it here.
