When followed the abomination of dissolution, the rule of inquisition and the blackness of darkness in which Spain has been plunged ever since…In the land where science was once supreme, the Spanish doctors became noted for nothing but their ignorance and incapacity. The arts of Toledo and Almeria faded into insignificance.” – Stanley Lane-Poole, The Moors in Spain.
