Muslims in Medieval Italy

This history of a Muslim colony in the southern Italian city of Lucera during the Middle Ages draws upon an array of primary sources, unpublished manuscripts and archeological data to provide a detailed account of the lives of Muslims against the backdrop of the social and political complexities of medieval Lucera. It illuminates the legal and social status of Muslims in Christendom and the contributions made by Muslims to the economy and defence of the kingdom of Sicily, as well as yielding insights into Muslim-Christian relations.
