Defining Boundaries in al-Andalus: Muslims, Christians, and Jews in Islamic Iberia (Book) [show prizes]
Title: Defining Boundaries in al-Andalus: Muslims, Christians, and Jews in Islamic Iberia
Author: Janina M. Safran
Abstract: Al-Andalus, the Arabic name for the medieval Islamic state in Iberia, endured for over 750 years following the Arab and Berber conquest of Hispania in 711. While the popular perception of al-Andalus is that of a land of religious tolerance and cultural cooperation, the fact is that we know relatively little about how Muslims governed Christians and Jews in al-Andalus and about social relations among Muslims, Christians, and Jews. In Defining Boundaries in al-Andalus, Janina M. Safran takes a close look at the structure and practice of Muslim political and legal-religious authority and offers a rare look at intercommunal life in Iberia during the first three centuries of Islamic rule. - from the publisher.
