This essay presents the controversies that exist amongst historians as to whether Spain in the Golden Age was the greatest empire the world had ever seen, conqueror of the new World, destroyer of heretics, consumer of the treasures of the Indies, ruled over by an absolutist regime which suppressed freedom. These propositions are now being questioned and the author argues that the experience of Spain was similiar to that of the rest of Europe and should not be viewed in isolation.
