When the Spanish conquistadors arrived in the New World, they brought with them the medieval notions of war and conquest carried over from the Spanish Reconquest against the Muslim infidel. As these medieval ideas were transported to the New World with the arrival of the conquistadors, the Native American was substituted for the Moorish infidel and became the object of discrimination and subjugation. Looked upon by the Spaniards as illiterate barbarians, who, like the Moor, had to be conquered and delivered the word of Christ, the colonial establishment felt justified in their domination over the local inhabitants. This study will focus on three pueblo missions in Central New Mexico which were conquered by the Spanish and whose inhabitants were forced to convert to Catholicism.
