Mudéjar - "Term applied to a style of architecture and decorative art, part Islamic and part Gothic, which grew up in Spain and Portugal during the gradual reconquest of the Peninsula from the Moors [12th - 15th centuries]. The Mudejars were those Muslims allowed to remain in Spain after the reconquest and the term 'Mudéjar' was originally applied to the characteristic style of work executed by Muslim craftsmen for Christian masters. It has since been extended to cover later Spanish work in the Islamic tradition, especially brick, plaster, wood, and tile treated in the Moorish manner. Mudejar styles also occur in book-binding, textiles, ceramics, ivory, furniture, and inlays of wood [taraceas] and metal [damascene work]."[Osborne, Harold, editor.
