ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Miguel de Cervantes' novel "Don Quixote" and argues that the novel's Morisco episodes should be read as a form of taqiya. According to the article, taqiya refers to the permissible dissimulation of Christianity by a devout Muslim. The novel's status as a narrative that sprung intrinsically from Moorish Spain is also highlighted.
