VALLS, RAPHAEL:

Spanish Marano; burned at the stake by the Inquisition at Palma, Majorca, on May 6, 1691, as the "rabbi" of the Chuetas, as were also his pupil, Raphael Terongi, and the latter's sister, Catalina Terongi, who adhered to Judaism. The popular poets of Majorca commemorated the death of these Maranos in verses which are still sung by the women of the island, one of them running as follows:

"En Valls duya se bandera, Y en Terongi's pano, En sos Xuetas derrera, Qui feyan se processo."
