Overview
Did Muslims and Jews in the Middle Ages cohabit in a peaceful "interfaith utopia"? Or were Jews under Muslim rule persecuted, much as they were in Christian lands? This text offers a systematic comparison of Jewish life in the medieval Islamic world and Christendom. It shows that, contrary to traditional beliefs, medieval Islamic-Jewish relations, though not utopic, were less confrontational and violent than those between Christians and Jews in the West.
