Gonzalo Velasco Berenguer

Lecturer, History, University of Bristol

Gonzalo Velasco is an historian of global medieval and early modern history with a particular focus on political, religious, social and racial processes across the Spanish Empire. He is especially interested in understanding how the legislation devised and enacted by the king’s government was received and applied both in Spain and in colonial settings and what this meant for the everyday lived experience of Spanish subjects across the Empire. He also researches early modern Catholicism, identity and early modern Anglo-Iberian relations. Gonzalo is the author of "Habsburg England: Politics and Religion in the Reign of Philip I (1554-1558)" (Brill, 2023).
