Medieval Encounters

Jewish, Christian and Muslim Culture in Confluence and Dialogue

Editor-in-Chief: Ryan Szpiech
Celebrating 25 Years of Medieval Encounters
To celebrate the 25th volume of Medieval Encounters, selected articles from the past 25 volumes will be available for free downloading during 2019. See the free articles here.

In addition, a reflection piece on Medieval Encounters, written by Editor-in-Chief Professor Ryan Szpiech (University of Michigan) to celebrate the journal’s 25th anniversary, is available throughout the year.

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.

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 is also understood broadly, to allow explorations of indirect intercultural interactions and exchange, and comparative approaches are also encouraged.

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. Articles may be written in English, French, German, Italian, or Spanish.

Ryan Szpiech (Ph.D., Yale, 2006) is associate professor of Spanish at the University of Michigan. He is a historian of the cultures and literatures of medieval Iberia, with a special focus on cultural interaction, exchange, and conflict.

HHis first book, Conversion and Narrative: Reading Authority in Medieval Polemic (Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, 2013), won the “La Corónica International Book Prize” in 2015. He also edited Medieval Exegesis and Religious Difference: Commentary, Conflict, and Community in the Premodern Mediterranean (Fordham University Press, 2015). Recently he has co-edited (with Josefina Rodríguez-Arribas, Charles Burnett, and Silke Ackermann) Astrolabes in Medieval Cultures (Brill, 2019) and written numerous articles and book chapters.
