Description

The fourteenth century in the Iberian Peninsula did not lack in dramatic crises and transformations. The wars involving Castile, Aragon, Portugal, and Granada, royal minorities, bloody civil wars, violence between noble factions, attacks on religious minorities, and the devastation of the Black Death and the famine shook the Iberian realms to the core. But the fourteenth century was also the time of reform and transition: the rise of new administrative structures, the maturation of representative assemblies, the coming to power of a new dynasty in Castile, and Aragon’s continuing expansion into the Mediterranean. The session seeks papers that highlight the significance of the fourteenth century in Iberia’s political, military, economic, social, and cultural development. Maya Soifer Irish
