The Jews of Islam

Add To Cart
The author argues that until quite recent times there existed a symbiosis of Muslims and Jews quite unlike anything that ever developed in the West. Indeed, he suggests, we can speak of a Judaeo-Islamic tradition which may well have been stronger and deeper than the more familiar Judaeo-Christian. For while the Jews of Islam lived neither under fanatical oppressors nor within some interfaith utopia, they did benefit from a pattern of tolerance in which discrimination was endemic but violent persecution 'rare and atypical.' "Professor Lewis traces this pattern of Muslim-Jewish relations from the early days of Islam to the present.
