Melton: The Star & The Crescent: A History of Jewish-Muslim Relations

view options Jews and Muslims have co-existed peacefully and contentiously, for more than a millennium. While looking at the commonalities between Judaism and Islam, this course looks closely at the sources of tension and conflict between them. Following the establishment of Islam, it was better to be Jewish in a Muslim country than a Christian one; later however, the relationship between Jews and Muslims deteriorate - particularly in the Middle East. Elsewhere, Jews and Muslims continue to find ways to coexist peaceably and often productively. This course will examine the longstanding relationship between Judaism and Islam, Jews, and Muslims, while broadening our understanding and challenging our assumptions.
