Chapter Summary

On Thursday 25 March 1611, the feast of the Incarnation, King Philip III solemnly celebrated the expulsion of the Moriscos from Spain. The recovery of Jerusalem for Christianity was a constant feature of both Spanish indigenous prophecies and of those with a wider European provenance. The political conquest of Jerusalem and the initiation of a new and more spiritual age had informed the many millenarian prophecies that had circulated among Jews, Christians and Muslims in fifteenth, sixteenth and early seventeenth-century Europe. The persistent search throughout history for times of renewal and transformation is evoked in the title of Norman Cohns title for his seminal book on millenarianism The Pursuit of the Millennium. The native prophetic tradition known as the via gotica was attributed to St. Isidore (560636) of Seville.
