Chapter 6 focuses on three case studies: the appropriation of Córdoba Mosque as a classical edifice, the transformation of Seville Giralda into an antiquity, and, finally, the humanist reading of Toledo. Since in the latter the destruction of the Aljama Mosque had deprived the city of major Islamic buildings, it provides a useful example to explore the limits of antiquarian strategy (Francisco de Pisa, Pedro de Rojas, Cristóbal Lozano). Regarding Córdoba, Pablo de Céspedes’ theory about a section of the mosque actually being Roman is commented on. Regarding Seville, the common praise for the Giralda is analyzed upon its antiquarian description by Alonso Morgado, which was later copied and transformed by Rodrigo Caro.
