This volume brings together articles on the cultural, religious, social and commercial interactions among Jews, Christians and Muslims in the medieval and early modern periods. Written by leading scholars in Jewish studies, Islamic studies, medieval history and social and economic history, the contributions to this volume reflect the profound influence on these fields of the volume's honoree, Professor Mark R. Cohen.
Arnold E. Franklin, Ph.D. (2001), Princeton University, is associate professor in the History Department at Queens College, City University of New York. His research focuses on medieval Jewish society in the Islamic world. His recent book, This Noble House: Jewish Descendants of King David in the Medieval Islamic East (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2012), is a study of the profound concern with biblical genealogy that developed among Jews in Arabic-speaking lands.
Roxani Eleni Margariti, Ph.D. ( 2002), Princeton University, is associate professor at Emory University, and the author of Aden and the Indian Ocean Trade: 150 Years in the Life of a Medieval Arabian Port (University of North Carolina Press, 2007).
Marina Rustow, Ph.D. (2004), Columbia University, is the Charlotte Bloomberg professor in the Humanities and an associate professor in the History Department at Johns Hopkins University. She is the author of Heresy and the Politics of Community: The Jews of the Fatimid Caliphate (Cornell University Press, 2008), which won the Salo Baron Prize and the Jordan Schnitzer Award, and the co-editor of Jewish Studies at the Crossroads of Anthropology and History: Authority, Diaspora, Tradition (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2011).
Uriel Simonsohn, Ph.D. (2008), Princeton University, is assistant professor in the Department of Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Haifa. He is a historian of early Islamic history. His book, A Common Justice: The Legal Allegiances of Christians and Jews under Early Islam (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2011), explores the social affiliations of non-Muslims in the first few centuries after the Islamic conquest.
Scholars and students interested in the history of interreligious encounters in pre-modern times will find this volume of indispensible value. The book will especially appeal to those who seek to delve into the literary, legal, and social manifestations of such encounters.
'In a period marked by an inflation of proliferating Festschriften, it is a pleasure to read a book of quality articles clearly focused on the research areas of a very worthy scholar. Mark R. Cohen, who taught for forty years at Princeton University, pursued innovative investigations of Jewish-Islamic relations in the realms of both economics and politics in light of findings from the Cairo Geniza, a Jewish repository of hundreds of thousands of medieval literary and documentary texts'.
