Spain: The First Globalization

A documentary by José Luis López-Linares

Spain’s role in world history entered a critical period, full of lights and shadows, between the late 15th to early 18th centuries. This era largely determined the course of world history in general and Ibero-American history in particular. This documentary brings together world-renowned scholars and historians like Stanley Payne, Nigel Townson, and Carmen Iglesias, who strip Manichaeism and presentism from the narrative of the circumstances and consequences of this historical period, painting a clearer picture of a time that paved the way for many present-day cultures.
