Chapter Summary

An article in the journal Al-Qanṭara on the passage through France of various Moriscos who eventually reached Tunisia, forces to recognize about the movements of Moriscos in the period between their expulsion from Spain and their settlement in various new areas. The article covers organisational peculiarities of the Moriscos in France immediately after 1609. The Moriscos were retained in their places of origin or residence by certain regulations, and this led many of them to feel the urge to flee over a period which lasted until the time of their definitive expulsion from Spain. The Moriscos started to use the route to Saint Jean de Luz just before the Expulsion and during the years that it lasted, and in doing so they took advantage of the existing infrastructure of the judeoconverso colony. In 1612, the Morisco spy Gabriel Carmona Venegas wrote an aviso on the state of affairs in France.
