Abstract

The aim of this session is to analyze tax practices in the kingdom of Granada and the Andalusian Frontier at the end of the Middle Ages, from the point of view of its materiality. Every tax system needs fraud control mechanisms. In the case of taxes levied on trade or agrarian production this control existed in the form of specific physical spaces for commercial exchange, the regulation of economic activity, and the control of income or production, both in physical terms and written records. For this purpose attention will be focused on three cases related to the royal and ecclesiastical taxation of the kingdom of Granada and the taxation of Andalusian manors, as a way to establish similarities and divergences between different tax practices in a framework of comparative study.
