Abstract

In this paper we present an approach to the perception voiced by the Christian apologists of the Muslims after the fall of Granada, with special emphasis on the resistance presented converts (Moor New Christians) to divest its language, no identity sign only of a foreign culture, but a symbol of a religion that had to be excised from the Spanish territory.
