Abstract

SECRETO, Maria Verónica. ASYLUM: RIGHTS OF PEOPLES. REFUGEE SLAVES IN HISPANIC EMPIRE. Rev. Hist. (São Paulo) [online]. 2015, n.172, pp.197-219. ISSN 2316-9141.  http://dx.doi.org/10.11606/issn.2316-9141.rh.2015.98754.

In the eighteenth century, the Kings of Spain established by means of an abundant legislation, an asylum policy for the slaves who flee from other Kingdoms to the Spaniards territories. This research trace the origins of this policy and is possible to establish a relationship with the principle of "free soil". We affirm that the Spanish legislation on slavery have an strong influence across the Atlantic world and beyond. This influence was due to which Spain had an important set of living laws on the treatment of slaves and this is a result of a long contact between "people" coming from the Visigoth times.

Keywords : Asylum; slaves; Hispanic Empire.
