On the edge of the Isleta Indian Reservation in the foothills of New Mexico lies the Decalogue Stone, a giant boulder inscribed with the Ten Commandments in Phoenician Hebrew characters. The Indians, Spanish and Americans knew of its existence, and the nearby Crypto-Jewish community of Los Quelites venerated it, building a secret altar that the Spanish Inquisition smashed and destroyed. For the first time, in this unique monograph, the Decalogue Stones true origin is revealed in a connection to a forgotten eighth-century Jewish colony in the American Southwest known as Calalus.

If you are interested in Christianity, Judaism, Native American traditions, Southwest history or archeology, this book by an expert in epigraphy and historical monuments will fascinate you!
