King Ferdinand V (1452–1516) invited the Bishop of Coria to write the Luzero de la vida cristiana ("Morning Star of the Christian Life") in order to "expel the darkness of ignorance" from Spain, particularly among Jews and Muslims who had endured forced conversion to Christianity. Because it paraphrased the New Testament in the vernacular and embroidered Christ's life with non-Biblical episodes, the Luzero was placed on the Spanish Index librorum prohibitorum (1559).
