Book: The anxiety of sameness in early modern Spain


DESCRIPTION
This book explores the Spanish elite's fixation on social and racial 'passing' and 'passers', as represented in a wide range of texts. It examines literary and non-literary works produced in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries that express the dominant Spaniards' anxiety that socially mobile lowborns, Conversos (converted Jews), and Moriscos (converted Muslims) could impersonate and pass for 'pure' Christians like themselves. Ultimately, this book argues that while conspicuous sociocultural and ethnic difference was certainly perturbing and unsettling, in some ways it was not as threatening to the dominant Spanish identity as the potential discovery of the arbitrariness that separated them from the undesirables of society - and therefore the recognition of fundamental sameness.

New book: The Religious Polemics of the Muslims of Late Medieval Christian Iberia: Identity and Religious Authority in Mudejar Islam

Author: Mònica Colominas Aparicio
The Religious Polemics of the Muslims of Late Medieval Christian Iberia examines the corpus of polemical literature against the Christians and the Jews of the protected Muslims (Mudejars). Commonly portrayed as communities in cultural and religious decay, Mònica Colominas convincingly proves that the discourses against the Christians and the Jews in Mudejar treatises provided authoritative frameworks of Islamic normativity which helped to legitimize the residence of their communities in the Christian territories. Colominas argues that, while the primary aim of the polemics was to refute the views of their religious opponents, Mudejar treatises were also a tool used to advance Islamic knowledge and to strengthen the government and social cohesion of their communities.

Nuevo libro: Rifugiati I moriscos e l’Italia


Autori: Pomara Saverino, Bruno
Anno di edizione: 2017
Pagine: 348
Collana: Premio Istituto Sangalli per la storia religiosa
Il libro ricostruisce una vicenda poco conosciuta: l’arrivo in Italia di migliaia di esuli moriscos, discendenti di origine arabo-musulmana, da secoli insediati nella penisola iberica, battezzati a seguito della Reconquista cristiana (1492), sovente accusati di cripto-islamismo e tradimento della patria, infine espulsi e deportati dalla Spagna (1609-1614). Quali sono gli ostacoli incontrati dai rifugiati nel cammino dell’esodo? Quale il comportamento delle autorità di fronte agli sbarchi? E in che termini i profughi hanno interagito con le popolazioni locali? Domande attuali poste a problemi antichi che l’Italia, nella sua frammentazione politica, ha vissuto già in altre occasioni.
