Primary Instructor:

The dawn of the sixteenth century saw a new age of confessionalization in Spain. Between 1492 and 1526, the Jewish and Muslim communities of Iberia were forced to accept the Catholic faith or take the road of exile. Known as Moriscos and Conversos, these former Muslims and Jews were now expected to fully assimilate to the dominant culture. And while some secretly held steadfast to their old religion, others went to great lengths to be accepted as Catholic Spaniards.

This course will explore these parallel Morisco and Converso histories in a comparative and connected way. Anchored in a historical and cultural perspective we will read chronicles, literary texts, inquisitorial trials, and Converso and Aljamiado literature, to explore the processes of transformation and (re)creation of these communities.
