(cross-leveled with HIST 7605). In this course, we begin with Fernando and Isabel, whose marriage brought together the two principle territories of Castile and Aragon, leading to the beginnings of a “united” Spain. As we trace the political and social history of Spain through the early modern era, we’ll also be examining the many myths surrounding Spanish history including topics such as the Columbus’ voyages, the Spanish Inquisition and the Black Legend.
