The Mozarab and Greek Christians of Castile and Sicily, ca. 1100-1500

This project will further our understanding of shifting communal identification in a multicultural world by supporting the comparative research of two medieval indigenous Christian groups which resided in two formerly Islamic realms: the culturally Arabic Mozarabs of Castile and the culturally Greek Christians of Sicily (ca 1100-1500). Specifically, an NEH Summer Grant would allow me to complete my research in June and July 2014 by consulting key medieval Sicilian documents currently located in the archives of Paris, France and Toledo, Spain. My findings would be shared with the academic community and general public through the publishing of a scholarly monograph and the creation of a website dedicated to the open-access sharing of population databases and family trees that are essential to the collective study of pre-modern groups.
