Summary
"A history of the reign of Ferdinand and Isabella from the origins and upbringing of the two rulers, through the events and circumstances of their rule, to the consequences for the following generations." "The book provides full coverage of political, military, economic, social, cultural and religious life in Spain during this period. It covers the difficulties surrounding Isabella's accession in Castille and the consolidation of the new regime. The author analyses the origins and work of the new Spanish Inquisition and the war against the Muslim kingdom of Granada. Emphasis is placed on economic life, including overseas trade and maritime discovery; there is coverage of foreign policy, literature, art, architecture, music and drama; and analysis of the influence on Spain of Humanism and the Renaissance. The role of religion is fully discussed, including the expulsion of the Jews in 1492, the treatment of Muslims, and the religious and economic life of the Church together with efforts to reform it." "The book concludes with an evaluation of the achievements of the "Catholic Monarchs" and their legacy to Charles V. It provides a valuable introduction to this key period in Spanish history."--BOOK JACKET
