This chapter offers an alternative, multidisciplinary approach to the study of nationalism and ethnicity in Iberian cultures by focusing on the interaction between religious conversion and translation. The analysis is structured around three major periods of collective identity building in Spain: the Nation-State, the decentralized pluri-national state (with the Basque country and Andalusia as selected case studies), and the Age of Memory and Globalization. For each of the selected moments of collective identity building, specific strategies of translation as linked to religious conversion can be discerned. Recalling Benjamin's notion of translation as a ‘mode’, these strategies transpire the specific ‘modes’ of identity building in the course of history.
