Rate this:
A collection of studies, based on royal registers, examining relations between the three religious cultures in 13th-century Valencia following the Christian reconquest. Describes the Franciscan Ramon Llull's program to convert both Muslims and Jews. Ch. 5 (pp. 126-141), "King Jaume's Jews: Problems and Methodology", argues that Jews played an important role in Valencian society and that stereotypes viewing them as mostly urban moneylenders should be corrected. During the anti-Muslim riots of 1275-76, Jews were not harmed although there is evidence of popular hostility, incited by the friars, toward the Jews. (From the Bibliography of the Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism).
