CitationThe Conversos And Moriscos In Late Medieval Spain And Beyond
AbstractOne of the sources cited by Father Román de la Higuera in his Historia Eclesiástica de Toledo is La Historia verdadera del rey don Rodrigo, a work authored by the Morisco from Granada Miguel de Luna. In this famous work of falsifi cation Luna claimed to have translated an ancient Arab chronicle housed in the Royal Library of El Escorial, which related a history of the Muslim conquest of the Iberian Peninsula. Luna’s history was in fact an absolute fantasy, not that this impeded it from becoming a popular success in both Spain and abroad. As is well known, Miguel de Luna is also one of the protagonists in the “Turpiana Tower parchment” and “Lead Books of Sacramonte” falsifi cations, both forgeries executed in the city of Granada.
