9780748620081: The Muslims of Medieval Italy (The New Edinburgh Islamic Surveys)

This significant new work focuses on the formation and disintegration of Arab-Muslim rule and society in Sicily and south Italy between 800 and 1300 which led to the creation of an enduring Muslim-Christian frontier during the age of the Crusades. It examines the long and short-term impact of Islamic authority and culture on these regions and how they later fell into the hands of European rulers, explaining how the Norman conquest of Sicily came to import radically different dynamics to the central Mediterranean. The change of ruling elites left a majority Muslim population under Christian rule, but the Sicilian kings also adopted and adapted political ideologies from south Mediterranean regimes while absorbing cultural influences from the diverse peoples over whom they ruled. This work provides an engaging, expert and wide-ranging introduction to the subject and offers fresh and clear insights into the politico-religious, socio-economic and cultural evolution of Europe and the Islamic world.

About the Author:


Alex Metcalfe is Lecturer in History at the Lancaster University.

Review:


"Sicily's rich and unique history during this period of intense contact - first under Muslim rule and then under Norman rule - is here superbly narrated and analysed. The author aims to provide both a survey and a monograph, a very difficult task, which he handles very well. On the one hand, it can be used as a reference book for any aspect of Muslim presence in Sicily and southern Italy in the medieval period; while at the same time it also offers fresh analysis, and is always challenging." -- Yossef Rapoport, Journal of Islamic Studies
