The series on Jews and Muslims who converted to Christianity after Spain was united in 1492 collects papers from a 2008 conference in Segovia, Spain. The 12 papers in this second volume focus mostly on the Moriscos, converted Muslims. The topics include the different reality of Canary Moriscos, the Morisco problem and Seville 1480-1610, violence and religious identity in early modern Valencia, Morisco stories and the complexities of resistance and assimilation, exile in Cervantes' Persiles, and the extradition of Conversos between the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisitions during the 16th and 17th centuries.
