Melton: Star and the Crescent

10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

Jews and Muslims have co-existed, at times peacefully, at times contentiously, for more than a millennium. What do they share in common? What are the sources of tension and conflict between Judaism and Islam? In order to delve successfully into these questions, it is necessary to unglue ourselves from a twenty-first century perception that presumes the relationship between Muslims and Jews to be one of perpetual strife and mutual antagonism. In this course, students will discover what it was like for a Jew to be living in a Muslim country during the first thousand years after the founding of Islam, and what were the factors that ultimately brought that largely peaceful experience to an end?
