Spain's Roman Catholic bishops are to petition the Pope to canonise Queen Isabella of Castile, one of history's most vilified monarchs.

Senior churchmen led by Cardinal Antonio Maria Rouco, the Archbishop of Madrid, yesterday revived a campaign asking that Queen Isabella be beatified, the first step towards being made a saint.

They hope for her to be beatified next year to mark the 500th anniversary of her death.

During her tempestuous 15th century reign, Isabella conquered much of Latin America for the Vatican, ended the 700-year presence of Moors and Jews on the Iberian Peninsula and assured the hegemony of Castile and the Catholic Church in Spain.

"We have investigated every aspect of this controversial and fascinating woman and it appears to be the time to abandon intransigence and see her in the context of her time and environment," said Jose Delicado, the Archbishop of Vallodolid, at the launch of the campaign, which was attended by Latin American ambassadors to Madrid.

Earlier attempts to launch Isabella - or La Catolica as she became known - on the road to sainthood ended in ignominy.

Waves of protest accompanied a 1999 initiative, with her detractors accusing her of exiling Jews and Muslims from Spain, instigating genocide in Latin America and setting up the Inquisition, which tortured and burnt hundreds of her countrymen at the stake.

The dictator Gen Franco instigated a campaign for Isabella's canonisation in 1952, believing that she embodied the ideals of "national Catholicism" along with its connotations of religious and racial purity.

But her popularity with Franco tarnished her image and the Vatican put to one side the 217 volumes and 800,000 documents sent to them by the then archbishop of Vallodolid.

Honestly I don't think she should be granted sainthood either but the people of the 15th century she did what was best for her people like all the kings and queens must think for their people.

I do think she should be a saint. I've always admired the fact that her country and her religion meant so much to her. I mean, she went out in battle herself, while she was pregnant.

I think to her her religion and her country were the most important thing.

If intolerance and bigotry are prerequisites for sainthood than she should be made a saint. Otherwise she should not. She was an acommplice to the murder and destruction of innocent human beings, just because they were different than she. She really was no better than Hitler, except for the time of civilization.

While an important historical figure, she certainly wasn't a saint. Not with religious persecution and genocide on her resume.

She behaved as she behaved because the Church she trusted said it was the right way of behaving. She was a saint so.
As a Catholic, the problem for me is that the Church seems now to have changed its way of seeing things: so now why should one person work hard trying to do what the Church tell him to do if in few centuries they will change their mind??

Exactly. They didn't trust people who converted, as they thought they were practicing the other religions in secret. Besides, while she was growing up there was a lot of anarchy. I think it is natural that she wanted to reconquer the lands, and wanted Spain united. She did what she thought was best for Spain, and of course, what she had been taught was right. And she did so much. New lands, driving the Moors and Jews out of Spain, or them converting. She was a very strong woman. I've always admired her for her strong devotion to her faith and her country, and everything she did for it.

Because as time passes people see that a thought that was incorrect needs to be corrected. The Church is only a group of men, men who made mistakes, big mistakes and at this time they are seeing the mistakes and mending those faults. She, as you say, trusted her church and that is okay. But that doesn't make her a saint. She did a great deal of harm and supported it.
