Medieval Encounters

Jewish, Christian and Muslim Culture in Confluence and Dialogue


Executive Editor: Ryan Szpiech, University of Michigan


Medieval Encounters promotes discussion and dialogue across cultural, linguistic and disciplinary boundaries on the interactions of Jewish, Christian and Muslim cultures during the period from the fourth through to the sixteenth century C.E.

Interacting traditions
Culture is defined in its widest form to include art, all manner of history, languages, literature, medicine, music, philosophy, religion and science. The geographic limits of inquiry will be bounded only by the limits in which the traditions interacted. Confluence, too, will be construed in its widest form to permit exploration of more indirect interactions and influences and to permit examination of important subjects on a comparative basis.

Refereed by leading scholars
Articles may deal with specific texts, events or phenomena, as well as theories of interpretations and analysis. The journal will actively promote a representative spread across all the humanistic disciplines and scholarly communities. All articles will be refereed by members of the editorial board and other scholars on the basis of their scholarly merit and the degree to which they promote our understanding of Jewish, Christian and Muslim relations in the Middle Ages.
