L'appréhension des mudéjares par la société chrétienne dans le midi portugais 1249-1496 : quelques données et propositions de réflexion
AbstractThe life of the Portuguese Mudejares is only known through documents produced by other social structures and systems. It is not only legitimate but necessary to "filter" these documents to learn more about their way of life. However, this can only be done after a prior interpretation of the social prac¬tices and ideology of Christian society regarding the Mudejares, particularly since they were living in the midst of the Portuguese society and thus depended upon their relationship with the rest of the community. This article proposes some preliminary considerations (which we expect will be corrected and more deeply studied by M. F. de Barros in his PhD dissertation) on the other aspects of the life of the Mudejares: since they were living in separated communities, these Portuguese citizens were seen with some mistrust both by the authorities and by their Christian neighbours. As a result of this, in the period between the years of 1320 and 1340, the Mudejares were increasingly seen as foreigners.
