Video Orientation to the University of Pennsylvania Library's Ms. Codex 1657, the second volume of a set of three of collected manuscripts on relations between Portugal and other nations. This volume includes two works discussing the New Christians or Marranos in Portugal and three works on Russian forces or relations between Portugal and Russia. A large document in the middle of the volume was a copy of document in Spanish about the detention of three Argentinian boats in 1703 in Rio de Janeiro and in the Algarve; it was removed by Alfonso Cassuto and replaced with blank leaves. Ms. Codex 1657 was likely written in Portugal, at some point over the 18th century.
