This book provides the first analysis of the evolution of the Mudejar of conquered Muslim community of Xàtiva from its foundation after the Christian conquest in 1244 until 1327. Using the Mudejar revolt of 1276 as a turning point, it examines the political, social, economic and religious foundations of the community, and compares the status of the Mudejar generation of the conquest with later generations. An analysis of the increased Christian acculturative pressure on the Mudejars shows that the Mudejars of Xàtiva did not remain passive, but responded with emigration and frequent appeals to the crown.Based on extensive archival reserach, it provides a much needed study of the largest and most important Mudejar community in the kingdom of Valencia.
