* "Daily life in the Spanish Reconquest": Scenes from Tenth-Century León by Claudio Sánchez Albornoz
"Only in two cases can we attempt to reconstruct life in a Spanish city before the last millennium with any hope of success: that is to say, in León and Córdoba. The rich and varied Hispano-Arabic literature, the abundant and expressive historical writings of Spanish Muslims, and the splendid ruins of Córdoba which survive to our own day, seem sufficient to allow us to describe the city of the Spanish caliphs in the age of Abd-ar-Rahman III and Almanzor. But in the following pages I will be attempting to depict some scenes of life in León in the tenth century."

* "Ransoming Captives in Crusader Spain": The Order of Merced on the Christian-Islamic Frontier by James William Brodman
Electronic version of a published text from 1986. (LIBRO) "The Order of Merced (or the Mercedarians) was one of the hundreds of caritative associations that sprang up in Europe during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. These institutions consisted of hospitals, hospices, and houses of charity of various sizes and varieties. Some were operated under the aegis of communities of canons, cathedral chapters, or religious orders. Others were inaugurated by less-formally constituted bodies of laymen and laywomen or by confraternities organized by groups of town residents. Most were entirely local in their origin and purpose, but some were affiliated with larger groups, such as the Knights of St. John or the Brothers of Aubrac."
