Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Knights on the Frontier contains table of contents, acknowledgements and introduction about the book. Constant interchange between Christians and Muslims had created a climate which favoured the voluntary conversion of some individuals to Christianity in 15th century. It is quite legitimate to speak of a process of cultural and religious assimilation similar to that which was ushered in by archbishop Hernando of Talavera in a later period. Castile was subject to intense disruptive forces during the first half of the 15th century, a period which saw the worst political situation since the enthronement of the Trastmara dynasty. The book focuses on foreign policies of Castile and Granada that made the flow of men possible.
