Summary
  • Steven Wasserstrom undertakes a detailed analysis of the "creative symbiosis" that existed between Jewish and Muslim religious thought in the eighth through tenth centuries. Wasserstrom brings the disciplinary approaches of religious studies to bear on questions that have been examined previously by historians and by specialists in Judaism and Islam. His thematic approach provides an example of how difficult questions of influence might be opened up for broader examination
  • An investigation of the milieu in which Jews and Muslims interacted sheds new light on their shared religious imaginings. Throughout, Wasserstrom expands on the work of social and political historians to include symbolic and conceptual aspects of interreligious symbiosis. The manifold ways in which Jews and Muslims understood their mutual acknowledgments of the other provides a coherent focus for Wasserstrom's examinations. This book will interest scholars of Judaism and Islam, as well as those who are attracted by the larger issues exposed by its methodology
