Looking back from 2012 to the hispanic past: 1212 and 1512 revisited

 

A double session of MIMSS in commemoration of two significant dates

in Spanish history

Whilst the most widely-commemorated anniversary in 2012 has been that of the 1812 Constitution of Cadiz, there are other significant historical episodes in the geopolitical configuration of the Iberian Peninsula whose anniversaries also fall this year, and MIMSS is pleased to host reflections on two of these by two distinguished historians of medieval Iberia who have kindly agreed to present papers. Their subjects are events and processes involved in the years of the campaign of Las Navas de Tolosa in 1212 (Dr Peter Linehan) and the annexation of Navarre in 1512 (Dr John Edwards).  Their papers are as follows:
