From its foundation until 1530, the Valencian Holy Office tried about 2,350 people; over 90% of them were Judaizers, and over 750 of them were put to death. From 1530 to 1609, this tribunal put at least 4,250 defendants on trial: over two-thirds of them were Moriscos and few of them were executed in person (two dozen Moriscos, two Judaizers, four “Lutherans” and a half-dozen sodomites).
