This article aims to place the Jewish polemical text "Prevenciones divinas contra la vana idolatría de las gentes", written by Isaac Orobio de Castro, in the broader framework of the anti-Christian Jewish polemical literature, through the observation of some stylistic and argumentative discontinuities or continuity. The "Prevenciones" occupied an important role in the history of European thought. This text circulated clandestinely among the libraries of the free thinkers and the European illuminists. It is for this reason that the text is able to shed light on a piece of history that is not only part of Jewish history.
