The October 1765 issue of The Jester's Magazine featured the following anecdote—which admittedly feels incomplete—about a Jewish father and son ensnared by the Spanish Inquisition.
British periodicals of the era enjoyed reporting on the horrors of the Spanish Inquisition. For example, here's something from 1731:
Getting back to the story in the Jester's Magazine, it's interesting mainly for how . . . pointless it seems. I mean, it's a nice story. Father and son are in a dungeon, son escapes, but returns to save his father. The point seems to be the "Generosity that would have done Credit to a Christian," that is the mussar point that it was a Jew who was demonstrating such selfless filial piety. While the stories are entirely different, I feel slightly reminded of the Talmudic story of Dama ben Nethina, a gentile whose demonstration of filial devotion so impressed the rabbis.
