Moriscos (, ; mouriscos ; meaning "Moorish") were former Muslims and their descendants who were pressured heavily by the Catholic church and the Spanish Crown under the threat of death to convert to Christianity after Spain outlawed the open practice of Islam by its sizeable Muslim population (termed mudéjar) in the early 16th century.wikipedia
