I realize that 150 years passed between this conversion and Jews being invited back to England but I wonder if, as in Spain, it would not have happened for many years even after that? I also realize that there was antisemitism in Protestant countries, too, but it seems like, as in the case of Holland, there was more tolerance of religious minorities and in particular Jews there.
