Chapter Summary

Moriscos and judeoconversos or simply conversos have often been compared to each other on account of their similar situations in Catholic Spain. The author focuses on the roles of Spain, the conversos and the Moriscos within the two diaspora communities; but takes a special interest in those members of both groups who remained within their community at least in culture, if not in religion, leaving aside, for the time being, those who "assimilated" or became "invisible". The author examines in particular the relationships, real or imagined, established by Spanish Moriscos with the groups of andalusíes created by the waves of migration that began in the 1480s, or even in the thirteenth century, and culminated in the Expulsion of 1609-1614; and compares them to those formed in the judeoconverso case by the Sephardim who were exiled in 1492 and after.

Keywords: andalusíes; judeoconversos; Moriscos; Sephardim; Spanish Moriscos
