Sefarad: Spain and the Sephardic diaspora in Mexico and Latin America

 

From the year 711, Spain entered Islam and the Jews were reunited with their brothers from East and North Africa through the Muslim socio-cultural and economic domain. From Abderrahman III (912-961), Jewish personalities belonged to the court elite: viziers, counselors, doctors, astronomers, philosophers and poets enhanced their culture by reviving Hebrew as a literary language. In the eleventh century, with Taifa kingdoms, the Hispanic-Jewish culture reached its greatest splendor. Other Jews settled under the protection of Christian kings, initiating the historical phase of Sepharad, until their expulsion in 1492. This diaspora spread to the Mediterranean and, via northern Europe, to America.
