The essays in this interdisciplinary volume examine the social and cultural interaction of Christians, Muslims and Jews in Spain during the mediaeval and early modern periods. Together, the essays provide a unique comparative perspective on compelling problems of ethnoreligious relations. The book considers how certain social and political conditions fostered fruitful cultural interchange, while others promoted mutual hostility and aversion. It examines the factors that enabled one religious minority to maintain its cultural integrity and identity more effectively than another in the same sociopolitical setting. The aim is to provide an enriched understanding of how Christians, Muslims and Jews encountered ideological antagonism and negotiated the theological and social boundaries that separated them.
