Spanish term or phrase: doble prejuicio
A este propósito, los estudiosos de crítica literaria, sobre todo norteamericanos e ingleses hace tiempo que han ido superando el doble prejuicio hacia los evangelios como Kleinliteratur o como historias legendarias y han confirmado la abundante y fiable información histórica de las fuentes cristianas en lo que se refiere a las palabras, las actitudes y las historias de Jesús de Nazaret.

English translation:twofold prejudice
Explanation:
Unless I am missing something vital and am about to be embarrassed by another answer, this is all it is. "Double prejudice" would be OK, I think, but I chose "twofold" partly because I found it in the following, which puts us in the right world, I think:
"The devil raises in the hearts of men a twofold prejudice against Christ and his ways:"

Just to provide a bit of context, the two alleged prejudices are:
(a) that the Bible, and specifically the Gospels, are Kleinliteratur, lowly literature (as opposed to the “high literature” of the Greco-Roman classics), “the sedimentation or crystallization of oral tradition”, an idea propounded in Biblical scholarship by Franz Overbeck (1837-1905). See eg. John S. Kloppenburg, The formation of Q: trajectories in ancient wisdom collections (http://books.google.es/books?id=t5N5lUEqy3wC&pg=PA3&lpg=PA3&... )
(b) that the Bible stories are myth or legend.

I like "prejudice" here because it implies an element of wilful blindness and hostility, which the author wishes to suggest, I think.

double preconception


Explanation:
... have gradually overcome their double preconception of the gospels as Kleinliteratur or legendary stories...

i.e. they 'prejudged' the gospels in two ways.
