Faits religieux et manuels d’histoire : contenus, institutions, pratiques : approches comparées à l’échelle internationale

Peut-on et doit-on enseigner les faits religieux à l’école ? À quelles conditions un savoir rigoureux et scientifique sur cette question peut-il être dispensé ? Au moment où, plus que jamais, le religieux est l’objet de multiples projections, qu’il est invoqué, voire instrumentalisé, par des acteurs du champ politique et souvent réduit à la violence qu’il génère, il est important que tous ceux qui... more

Jews in early Christian law

The sixth to eleventh centuries are a crucial formative period for Jewish communities in Byzantium and Latin Europe: this is also a period for which sources are scarce and about which historians have often had to speculate on the basis of scant evidence. The legal sources studied in this volume provide a relative wealth of textual material concerning Jews, and for certain areas and periods are the... more

Law and religious minorities in Medieval societies

This volume shows through the use of legal sources that law was used to try to erect boundaries between communities in order to regulate or restrict interaction between the faithful and the non-faithful; and at the same time shows how these boundaries were repeatedly transgressed and negotiated. Muslim law developed a clear legal cadre for dhimmīs, inferior but protected non-Muslim communities (i... more

Religious minorities in Christian, Jewish and Muslim law (5th-15th centuries)

The fruit of a sustained and close collaboration between historians, linguists and jurists working on the Christian, Muslim and Jewish societies of the Middle Ages, this book explores the theme of religious coexistence (and the problems it poses) from a resolutely comparative perspective. The authors concentrate on a key aspect of this coexistence: the legal status attributed to Jews and Muslims ... more

Religious minorities, integration and the State

Judaism, Christianity and Islam have coexisted in Europe for over 1300 years. The three monotheistic faiths differ in demography, in the moment of their arrival on the continent and in the unequal relations they maintain with power: Christianity was chosen by a large number of inhabitants and became — in spite of important differences according to place and time —a religion of state. The organizat... more
