Félix de Urgel: Influencias islámicas encubiertas de judaísmo y los mozárabes del siglo VIII

Mikel de Epalza


Study of some elements in new Hispanic Christian doctrines of the 8th century, among them Félix de Urgel’s adoptionist doctrines, which can be attributed to indirect influences derived from the beliefs of Muslims, who had recently settled down in Hispania (Al-Andalus). Modern scholars’ opinions. How Christian theologians justified these new elements with traditional Christian texts, when they accepted them, and how they accused them of being Judaizing, when they rejected them. Three appendixes: 1. on the importance of getting to know Félix de Urgel episcopal hierarchical dependences, so that we can understand his religious role, between Visigothic and Mozarabic Toledo’s metropolitan authority and Carolingian Narbonne’s authority; 2. previous studies by the author on more general approaches regarding the permanence of Christianity as well as Hispanic Christians’ (Mozarabs’) conversions to Islam during the 8th century; 3. Felix and the evolution of Mozarabic society (8th-12th centuries).”
