AbstractThe forced conversion of Jews and Christians stands out among the most puzzling policies implemented at the beginning of the Almohad revolutionary movement. In this article, the reasons behind such decision are reviewed again 1 and then the focus is moved to its implications. Two aspects are dealt with: the Almohads’ suspicions about the faith of the forced converts, giving rise to discriminatory policies against them; and Almohad conceptions of a universal religion that advance our understanding of that “dream of conversion” which was such a prominent feature in the Mediterranean during the sixth/twelfth–seventh/thirteenth centuries.
