  • Resumen
    • The medical activities of the Moriscos during the Golden Age occupied a shadowy middle ground between their own cultural heritage and the demands of the Christian society in which they lived. That society defended itself against their competition (in a process of increasing corporativism) by legal measures which sought to ban them from officially practicing medicine. For that purpose such distortions as accusations of magic, and hence, of heresy, were used against them. In his Persiles Cervantes distinguishes between sorcery and magic, and develops his ideas, above all, in two case histories: one featuring Moriscos (Cenotia), the other, Jews (the wife of Zabulón). The methods in the two cases differ, although both involve love stories. Cervantes' treatment of the subject is anecdotal, hackneyed, and almost incoherent.
