Christians, Muslims, and Jews in Medieval and Early Modern Spain

Christians, Muslims, and Jews in Medieval and Early Modern Spain

Interaction and Cultural Change

Edited by Mark D. Meyerson and Edward D. English

“This important collection spans both the medieval and early modern period, illuminating the ongoing complexities and subtleties of relations between Christians, Muslims, and Jews in Spain from the ninth to the seventeenth centuries. These sixteen essays, together with an excellent introduction by the editors, go beyond easy definitions of convivencia and provide nuanced discussion of the historiography and issues raised by shifting ethnoreligious power structures, intellectual interaction, and social identity in the Iberian Peninsula.” —Olivia Remie Constable, Associate Professor of History, University of Notre Dame

“An excellent collection of essays on the complex interactions between Muslims, Christians, and Jews in medieval and early modern Spain. This volume will further highlight the competitive and, at times, harmonious relations between the three religions in the Iberian Peninsula.” — Benjamin R. Gampel, The Jewish Theological Seminary

“An insightful and innovative collection of articles, Christians, Muslims, and Jews in Medieval and Early Modern Spain offers to scholars in the field and to the general reader some of the most exciting —methodologically as well as historical— perspectives on the interactions among different religious groups in Iberia. Many of the articles in this book build on the pioneer work on the last decade and advance our knowledge of these topics to new and exciting levels." —Teofilo F. Ruiz, Professor of History, UCLA

“This is an excellent book for scholars interested in specific aspects and for those who want to reflect upon the interaction between different groups in medieval multicultural societies, particularly on the subtle issue of how identities and religion work and the images and attitudes that communities create for their own and others’ consumption.”— Al-Masaq

“[A]ll the essays in this book make iimportant contributions to their specific research fields. [D]elightful reading. . . .” — The Sixteenth Century Journal

“The scholarship is impressive, and the volume as a whole makes it abundantly clear that the study of cultural interaction in the Iberian peninsula is thriving.” — Islam and Christian Muslim Relations

“These essays build on recent scholarship and this volume will be read with profit by a wide range of scholars in diverse fields of study.” — Religious Studies Review
