Abstract

This study explores the shared spaces between Sufism, Andalusian spirituality and Christian Mysticism in the Iberian Peninsula. This article analyses mystical symbols and devotional constructions in a medieval and Golden Age chronological framework. In doing so, it seeks to establish the dynamics of interaction within a spiritual corpus that ranges from Oriental Sufism to Carmelite Mysticism via Andalusian and Mudejar spiritualities. This collation of myriad materials reveals a common thread and a collective tradition shaped by spiritual dialogue, collaboration and debate within a shared set of devotional coordinates.
