Summary expansion
Originally published in Spanish at Valencia in 1515, the Confusione had a considerable impact, as turncoat polemicists, whether they were Jews, Moslems or Catholics, always enjoyed a vicarious popularity. The text was translated into Italian by the Spanish scholar Domenico de Gaztelu, who introduced a number of Spanish works to Italian readers. The "Seville" imprint is almost certainly false, added by an anonymous Venetian printer (possibly the Tramezzino press?) probably to protect himself against the censure of the Inquisition which had banned the work because of the many quotations from the Qur'an that it contained. His device--a broken column--has not been traced either by Vaccaro or Zappella
