This chapter examines the issue of race in the Middle Ages, focusing on the case of Spain and its Jews. It analyzes whether the Jews were a separate race or they were simply a different religious ethnicity or caste. This chapter summarizes the modern question of race and racialization and investigates how medieval people worked to “naturalize” their own histories of social conflict.

Keywords:   race, Middle Ages, Spain, Jews, religious ethnicity, racialization, social conflict
