Abstract
ABSTRACT
The use of the Arabic (written or spoken) was considerably extended to the Moriscos of some regions of the Iberian Peninsula, specially in the kingdoms of Valencia and Granada. Nevertheless, in Castile, this situation is hardly noticed, at least until the arrival of the Moriscos of the Kingdom of Granada in 1571. The aim of this paper is to highlight that the Moriscos of Castile also used the Arabic language and that they both read and owned forbidden books and documents. As a result of the above mentioned verification, we also observe how that already mentioned application had a double dimension: on the one hand, as a vehicle of religious expression; and, specially, on the other hand, as an element of cultural identification.
