Good episode? Give it some love!
In 1535, Spanish holdings in the Americas proved so great that the Spanish government created the Viceroyalty of New Spain to govern all territory north of the Isthmus of Panama.
The jurisdiction of New Spain included areas of upper and lower California and large areas of the American southwest and southeast, including Florida.
Karoline Cook, author of Forbidden Passages: Muslims and Moriscos in Coloni…, serves as our guide as we explore some of the political, cultural, and religious history of New Spain. Specifically, how Spaniards and Spanish Americans used ideas about Muslims and a group of “new Christian” converts called Moriscos to define who could and should be able to settle and help colonies North America.
