Blood and Faith: The Purging of Muslim Spain, 1492–1614 w/ Matthew Carr & Abdul-Rehman Malik

29 May 2017 – 10:00

In 1609, the entire Muslim population of Spain was given three days to leave Spanish territory or be killed. In a brutal and traumatic exodus, entire families were forced to abandon the homes and villages where they had lived for generations. An estimated 300,000 Muslims had been removed from Spanish territory, making it – then – the largest act of ethnic cleansing in European history. Chaired by Abdul-Rehman Malik.
