Admiration and Awe

Antonio Urquízar-Herrera

Oxford University Press

Chapter 7 considers the link between archaeological arguments about the medieval Islamic buildings of Spain, the concept of restoration of the Christian nation, and the genealogical proposals of the ancient origin of the temples in the early times of local and national Christianity. The example of the changes of scope among the various Francisco Bermúdez de Pedraza writings on Granada is used to introduce the use of the antiquarian framework for the religious appropriation of Islamic monuments on the basis of archaeological tools and religious forgeries. A new model of local history is subsequently described, one entangled with ecclesiastical history where the antiquarian framework promoted an interpretation of Islamic buildings as ancient evidence of Christianity.

Keywords:   Francisco Bermúdez de Pedraza, Islamic Granada, Granada Lead Books, religious forgeries, ecclesiastical history, relics, religious antiquarianism, local history, cultural and religious homogenization
