Damião de Goes, born here in Alenquer, was a historian and great humanist in the early days
of this current so modern and avant-garde at the time. So assumed and passionate, that we saw,
despite the merit and royal favor, persecuted and condemned by the Holy Inquisition, in one of the most
complex processes of the hideous and tenebrous court.

" The distinction of creeds was not at all sympathetic to the Humanist cause, and for such a Damian paid dearly. Alenquer has a strong Jewish imprint, there is even an old Jewish quarter, hunting ground of the Inquisition. And to an advanced and avant-garde man like Damiao situation would be, at the very least, wrong and reprehensible.
