Chapter Summary

Pedro de Valencia viewed Christianity in the same way as St. Paul did: the hierarchies permitted in the Old Testament had ended with the coming of Christ. Christianity was caste-free and all new converts had full rights to material honours and to respect within society. In this chapter, there is an examination of some of the theological beliefs and religious convictions of Pedro de Valencia that inspired this lengthy treatise, in which he examines all the solutions that have been proposed for the problema morisco. In the chapter, then, there is a continuation of the analysis of the religious beliefs of Pedro de Valencia that are expressed in the Tratado and which underlie his attitudes towards the Moriscos. There is also a discussion the constant recurrence of these ideas in other writings of Valencia.
