Chapter Summary

This chapter argues that the fate of the Morisco minority can certainly be better understood if some description is made of the evolution of Mediterranean policy during the reign of Philip III and the changes which took place in it during the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. The extensive research literature on the Moriscos has tended to describe this group from the perspectives of social and religious history and, above all, from that of local history, thereby ignoring the international context of the early years of Philip III's reign. The Mediterranean of the years of the Expulsion of the Moriscos was not only occupied by ships flying under different flags. Although the role of the Papacy cannot be described as decisive in the Expulsion of the Moriscos, it is certainly instructive to consider the ideas held in Rome concerning the Muslim peril.
