This dissertation explores late medieval and early modern representations of racial and religious identity as represented in several renditions of a very popular book of chivalry. My dissertation addresses this lack, exploring the process of imagining identity--both on an individual and social scale--that is central to the formation of Western European states. The focus here is a comparative study of three versions of Fierabras, engaging on close readings that provide a clear depiction of identity and difference. In examining instances of labeling, religious conversion, "ethnic passing," and their political underpinnings, I consider some of the intricacies of European representations of Spain and Spain's self-representation as a religiously and ethnically homogenous nation.
