Medieval Christian Perceptions of Islam by John Victor Tolan

Book Description

For medieval Christians, Islam presented a series of disquieting challenges, and individual Christians portrayed Muslim culture in varied ways, according to their interests and prejudices. These fifteen original essays focus on unfamiliar texts that reflect the wide range of medieval Christianity's preoccupation with Islam, treating works from many different periods and in a wide range of genres and languages.

Saint Francis and the Sultan by John Victor Tolan Saint Francis and the Sultan, Hardback (March 2009)

In September, 1219, Francis of Assisi went to Egpyt to preach to Sultan al-Malik al-Kamil. John Tolan examines the varying depictions of this brief but highly significant meeting and how they reveal the changing fears and hopes that Muslim-Christian encounters have inspired in European artists and writers in the centuries since.

Saracens by John Victor Tolan Saracens, Paperback (April 2002)

Medieval Christian writers distorted the teachings of Islam and caricatured its believers in a variety of ways. What ideological purposes did these offensive portrayals serve? This book provides a comprehensive study of Christian polemical responses to Islam in the Middle Ages.
