COMUNICACIÓN Y PRENSA
A new book about the Moriscos swells the already wide collection of books about this period in history at the Alhambra Library.
Why recommend this book?
The answer to this question lies undoubtedly in the guarantees offered by any book by Bernard Vincent. His extensive academic career and his vocation as a researcher have made Professor Vincent an authority on modern Spanish history and in particular on Morisco society in the 16th century.
In this new contribution to this subject, the author cites the consequences in different places, situations and circumstances of the actions arising from the policy of expulsion: evangelization, discrimination and repression.
The introduction, which contextualizes the Moriscos, is followed by 20 chapters in which the author explores less frequent aspects of their story, describing for example the family in Chapter 6, marriage in Chapter 7, while in Chapter 9 he looks at the question of women. We would like to highlight above all Chapter 14, which deals with “Public and private space in Andalusian towns in the 15th and 16th centuries”, and Chapter 15: “The Albaicin of Granada in the 16th century (1527-1587)”.
