book description

In 1609, King Philip III signed an edict denouncing the Muslim inhabitants of Spain as heretics, traitors, and apostates. Later that year, the entireMuslim population was given three days to leave Spanish territory, on threat of death. In a brutal and traumatic exodus, entire families and communitieswere obliged to abandon homes and villages where they had lived for generations. By 1614 Muslim Spain had effectively ceased to exist. Blood and Faith is Matthew Carrs riveting chronicle of this virtually unknown episode, set against the vivid historical backdrop of the history of Muslim Spain.
