Jews, Christians, and the Abode of Islam

Full Product Description

In Jews, Christians, and the Abode of Islam, Jacob Lassner examines the triangular relationship that during the Middle Ages defined - and continues to define today - the political and cultural interaction among the three Abrahamic faiths. Lassner looks closely at the debates occasioned by modern Western scholarship on Islam to throw new light on the social and political status of medieval Jews and Christians in various Islamic lands from the seventh to the thirteenth centuries. Utilizing a vast array of primary sources, Lassner shows just what medieval Muslims meant when they spoke of tolerance, and how that abstract concept played out at different times and places in the real world of Christian and Jewish communities under Islamic rule.

Jews, Christians, and the Abode of Islam by Jacob Lassner was published by The University of Chicago Press in March 2014. The ISBN for Jews, Christians, and the Abode of Islam is 9780226143187.
