Relations between Christians and Muslims in the Iberian Peninsula have received only intermittent attention, being relegated to a secondary position among research interests. Yet the daily coexistence of the two faiths over several centuries at various levels – social, religious and intellectual, among others – is itself remarkable enough to warrant a thorough survey of relations on either side of a frontier that was at times purely imaginary (Burns 1989: 307–30). Analysis of interfaith relations will surely enhance our knowledge in other areas by shedding new light on the coexistence of the two communities in the course of six complex yet fruitful centuries from the year 1000 to 1600 (Monferrer-Sala 2013: 47–59).
