Ordenanzas jerezanas sobre la guarda de la frontera frente a Ronda y su serranía a comienzos de la guerra de Granada (1482–1484)

  • Juan Abellán Pérez


Frontier relations between the Crown of Castile and the Nasrid Kingdom of Granada demanded the establishment of a set of ordinances in case of a broken truce or other threat. Given these potential dangers, the Christian councils situated on the western frontier of the kingdom of Granada were responsible for maintaining control and observation points with guards who could give warning of Muslim invasion by means of signal beacons. Though each council had their own set of ordinances, during times of major threat they were able to coordinate together in such a way that no section of the frontier lacked vigilant protection.
