About Deciphering Secrets: Unlocking the Manuscripts of Medieval Spain

Deciphering Secrets: Unlocking the Manuscripts of Medieval Spain is a collaborative citizen science project focused on revealing the inter-religious relations of Jews, Christians, Muslims, and religious converts during the 12th through 16th centuries in late medieval Spain. Our focus is on transactional documents, such as house leases, that reveal the day-to-day interactions that bound lives together into interfaith communities. Our primary collaborators are municipal and cathedral archives in Spain -- including -- the Archivo de la Catedral de Burgos, Archivo Municipal de Burgos, Archivo y Biblioteca de la Catedral de Toledo, Archivo Municipal de Toledo, Archivo Municipal de Plasencia, Archivo de la Catedral de Plasencia, Archivo Historico de la Nobleza (Toledo), and the Archivo Municipal de Granada. Our project site is https://grants.uccs.edu/deciphering-secrets.
