Written through Francisco Núñez Muley, one of the coerced Christian converts, this notable letter resorts a clear-sighted, impassioned protest opposed to the unreasonable and strongly assimilationist legislation that required all switched over Muslims in Granada to decorate, communicate, devour, marry, have a good time fairs, and be buried precisely because the Castilian settler inhabitants did.

Now on hand in its first English translation, Núñez Muley’s account is a useful instance of ways Spain’s former Muslims made lively use of the written note to problem and brazenly withstand the gradually illiberal regulations of the Spanish Crown. well timed and resonant—given present debates referring to Islam, minorities, and cultural and linguistic assimilation—this variation presents students in a variety of fields with a bright and early instance of resistance within the face of oppression.
