Religion and Society in Spain, c. 1492 Hardback
by John Edwards
Part of the Variorum Collected Studies series
The articles in this volume explore both individual and corporate aspects of religion in Spain during the 15th and 16th centuries - Jewish, Christian and Muslim.
John Edwards looks in particular at the status, experience, and attitudes of the conversos, those who had converted to Christianity to avoid expulsion from Spain, and at the activities of the Inquisition.
In the second part of the book he expands his analysis to examine the social, economic, and political basis of religious conflict in the period.
The primary focus of the book is on the cities of Andalucia, Cordoba above all, but its concerns extend to Castile and Aragon as well.
