Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about rumour of a rebellion attempt among Seville's Morisco community after 1568, which lent a lot of significance and generated concern among local and royal authorities. The Moriscos were seen as a perpetual fifth column that could be mobilised at any time by the enemies of the day, be they Turks, Portuguese, English or French. This gave rise to rumors, concerns and fears of all kinds among the local population. The very fact that members of the Morisco community informed the authorities about the rumors of an uprising and that a number of notable Moriscos refused to take part in the attempt, reveal important difference in Morisco attitudes towards Old-Christian society.
