Entangled Hagiographies of the Religious Other (Hardback)Alexandra Cuffel (editor), Nikolas Jaspert (editor)
Hardback 245 Pages
Tales of "saints", whether told by their adherents or detractors, frequently featured the holy person's dealings with members of other religions or cultures, or the stories themselves were appropriated by different religious or cultural groups. As such narratives moved from one social, cultural, religious or chronological milieu to another, the representation and meaning of the given holy person and the manner of his/her dealing with the religious other also often changed. As basic storylines remained recognizable, the transformations of specific details often provide important clues about shifts in attitudes over time and between communities. This volume provides a varied array of case studies of this process, ranging from early China to various Christian, Muslim and Jewish cultural contexts in the late antique, medieval and early modern periods.
