The expulsion of the Moriscos from Spain (1609-1614) represents an important episode of ethnic, political and religious cleansing which affected about 300,000 persons. The controversial measure was legimitized by an ideology of religious and political unity that served to defend the expulsion of them all, crypto-Muslims and sincere converts to Christianity alike. The first part focuses on the decision to expel the Moriscos, its historical context and the role of such institutions as the Vatican and the religious orders, and nations such as France, Italy, the Dutch Republic, Morocco and the Ottoman Empire. The second part studies the aftermath of the expulsion, the forced migrations, settlement and Diaspora of the Moriscos, comparing their vicissitudes with that of the Jewish conversos.
Contributors are Youssef El Alaoui, Rafael Benítez Sánchez Blanco, Luis Fernando Bernabé Pons, Paulo Broggio, Miguel Ángel de Bunes Ibarra, Antonio Feros, Mercedes García-Arenal, Jorge Gil Herrera, Tijana Krstic, Sakina Missoum, Natalia Muchnik, Stefania Pastore, Juan Ignacio Pulido Serrano, James B. Tueller, Olatz Villanueva Zubizarreta, Bernard Vincent, and Gerard Wiegers.

Review:

"By recontextualizing the unhappy events of 1609-14 in an international context and by demonstrating what a diasporic approach might mean for interpreting the expulsion of the Moriscos, The Expulsion of the Moriscos from Spain will surely occupy a prominent place within the expanding scholarly literature in English on Spain's Morisco minority. It should find a ready readership among the growing number of anglophone students and scholars interested in early modern Iberia and the Muslim world, the encounter between Islam and Christianity, and relations between cultural and religious minorities and majorities."
A. Katie Harris (University of California, Davis), in: Renaissance Quarterly LXIX (2016).

"The Expulsion of the Moriscos from Spain provides a learned addition to the expanding scholarship on minority-minority and minority-majority relations in Spain...These innovative essays will be of interest to students and scholars of Hispanic, Sephardic and Islamic Studies, as well as to students of Early Modern Europe."
Jane S. Gerber (The Graduate Center of the City University of New York), in: Bulletin of Spanish Studes XCIV (2017).
