N2 - This paper analyses the early institutionalisation of slavery in the Cabo Verde islands. It is shown that initially slavery in Cabo Verde borrowed heavily from existing practices and ideologies in Iberia, in which slavery was legitimated through religious discrimination. However, the pivotal early role of the archipelago in the transatlantic slave trade meant that practices changed according to Atlantic factors. The frequent exchanges between Cabo Verde and the West African coast thereby created a mechanism for Atlantic factors to influence institutions within Africa itself. Both West Africa and the early Atlantic world were deeply interconnected even at this early period, and neither can be studied in isolation from the other.
