Chapter Summary

In Morocco, the Moriscos expelled from Spain between 1610 and 1614 were known, by the name of "Andalusians" and they formed part of an emigration process which had gone on for centuries. This chapter aims to show the continuity of a chiefly Granadan process of emigration to Morocco and to highlight the existence of a set of structures created by these emigrants, which were to serve the Moriscos expelled at the beginning of the seventeenth century. Such continuities and structures constituted long-lasting patterns which the author describes in some detail: a leading role was played in them by prophetic predictions and the desire to return to and even re-conquer former Peninsular territories. It is important to emphasise the emigrants' tendency to form autonomous communities that acted independently of local Moroccan authorities. Equally significant was the influence of the emigrants on certain political decisions made by Moroccan sultans.
