This special program is organized in conjunction with the exhibition at The Met Cloisters, Spain, 1000-1200: Art at the Frontiers of Faith. The roundtable will feature three scholars who have pioneered work on Jewish life in medieval Spain. The discussion will respond to the themes of the Frontiers of Faith exhibition, focusing particularly on Jewish presence within and across the geopolitical regions at the meeting points of Christian- and Muslim-ruled Spain, as well as the other kinds of “frontier zones,” or sites of intensive interaction between faiths, from urban markets to princely courts.
