Claire M. Gilbert develops the notion of "fiduciary translation" and uses it to illuminate the ways in which Arabic-Spanish translators in early modern Spain made themselves indispensable for the administration of the empire, despite the increased animosity Arabic speakers faced in the age of the Inquisition.
Claire M. Gilbert is Assistant Professor of History at Saint Louis University.
"In Good Faith makes important arguments regarding the role of Arabic to Spanish and Spanish to Arabic translation in early modern Iberian governance. Claire M. Gilbert's accounts of translators and their networks, dynasties, and struggles to create and preserve authority are fascinating; the exploration, throughout, of the paradoxes of translation is excellent; and the archival research is impressive."—Thomas Burman, University of Notre Dame
