'Muslims of Medieval Latin Christendom, c.1050-1614 is one of the most significant works on Christian-Muslim relations to have been published in the past twenty-five years. The book is original and scholarly, and its conclusions are wise.' Simon Barton, University of Exeter
'This is the first monograph that analyzes the Muslim communities of medieval Latin Christendom. Brian Catlos combines a focus on the diversity of experiences of these minorities in Spain, Portugal, Italy and Hungary with insightful discussions of general traits that shaped Islamic societies across medieval Europe. Making excellent use of the explosion of academic studies into this field of the last years on the one hand, and showing a passion for pioneering work on archival documents and manuscript sources on the other, Catlos brings the study of the economic, social, cultural and religious life of these minorities a major step forward.' Gerard Wiegers, University of Amsterdam and Visiting Research Fellow, Kate Hamburger Kolleg, Ruhr University Bochum
'The first modern scholarly work on this subject in any language, Brian Catlos's magisterial new book is likely to command its field for a long while to come. Well-known for his studies of religious minorities in medieval Spain, Catlos here not only synthesises an immense literature on mudejar societies but writes with equal authority on Italy, Hungary, the Crusader States, and indeed everywhere that Muslim subalterns, slaves or captives were to be found within medieval Latin Europe. In its range, learning, archival depth, clarity and vigour, this is an astonishing achievement.' Peregrine Horden, Royal Holloway, University of London
'This book will quickly become (and long remain) a vade mecum for students interested in the topic.' R. T. Ingoglia, Choice
'This book will become the standard book in English for any aspect of Muslim presence in Christian society in the Middle Ages.' Charles Burnett, Journal of Islamic Studies
