Most historians and literary critics describe Spanish Golden-Age society as anti-Semitic, offering, for example, "El Nino Inocente de La Guardia" as confirmation that even great writers like Lope de Vega supported the marginalization of the descendants of "judeo-conversos." The aim of this book is to demonstrate that, contrary to general critical opinion, the Jew in Lope's comedia was often characterised with concealed sympathy through the employment of intricate literary techniques embedded in the text. Literary techniques such as subversive irony, which is an expression of the "converso" perspective, Erasmian "dissimulato, " transposition and interrogation of negative stereotypical models facilitate the covert presentation of a positive image of a Jew. The book ends with a discussion of six "comedias" by Lope that identify these positive images of the Jew."

An integrative approach to Jewish and Muslim philosophy in al-Andalus Al-Andalus, the Iberian territory ruled by Islam from the eighth to the fifteenth centuries, was home to a flourishing philosophical culture among Muslims and the Jews who lived in their midst. Andalusians spoke proudly of the region's excellence, and indeed it engendered celebrated thinkers such as Maimonides and Averroes. Sarah Stroumsa offers an integrative new approach to Jewish and Muslim philosophy in al-Andalus, where the cultural commonality of the Islamicate world allowed scholars from diverse religious backgrounds to engage in the same philosophical pursuits. Stroumsa traces the development of philosophy in Muslim Iberia from its introduction to the region to the diverse forms it took over time, from Aristotelianism and Neoplatonism to rational theology and mystical philosophy. She sheds light on the way the politics of the day, including the struggles with the Christians to the north of the peninsula and the Fāṭimids in North Africa, influenced philosophy in al-Andalus yet affected its development among the two religious communities in different ways. While acknowledging the dissimilar social status of Muslims and members of the religious minorities, Andalus and Sefarad highlights the common ground that united philosophers, providing new perspective on the development of philosophy in Islamic Spain.

In this book, Sephardism is defined not as an expression of Sephardic identity but as a politicized literary metaphor. Since the nineteenth century, this metaphor has occurred with extraordinary frequency in works by authors from a variety of ethnicities, religions, and nationalities in Europe, the Americas, North Africa, Israel, and even India. Sephardism asks why Gentile and Jewish writers and cultural figures have chosen to draw upon the medieval Sephardic experience to express their concerns about dissidents and minorities in modern nations? To what extent does their use of Sephardism overlap with other politicized discourses such as orientalism, hispanism, and medievalism, which also emerged from a clash between authoritarian, progressive, and romantic ideologies? This book brings a new approach to Sephardic Studies by situating it at a crossroads between Jewish Studies and Hispanic Studies in ways that enhance our appreciation of how historical fiction and political history have shaped, and were shaped by, historical attitudes toward Jews and their representation.

Textual Agency examines the massive proliferation of poetic texts in fifteenth-century Spain, focusing on the important yet little-known cancionero poetry – the largest poetic corpus of the European Middle Ages. Ana M. Gómez-Bravo situates this cultural production within its social, political, and material contexts. She places the different forms of document production fostered by a shifting political and urban model alongside the rise in literacy and access to reading materials and spaces. At the core of the book lies an examination of both the materials of writing and how human agents used and transformed them, giving way to a textual agency that pertains not only to writers, but to the inscribed paper. Gómez-Bravo also explores how authorial and textual agency were competing forces in the midst of an era marked by the institution of the Inquisition, the advent of the absolutist state, the growth of cities, and the constitution of the Spanish nation.

This volume presents expanded versions of papers read at a bi-national symposium convened in Jerusalem in December 1992. Organised within the framework of meetings held world-wide in remembrance of the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492, this conference focused on aspects of the profession and ethics of medicine. The major topics explored at the symposium were the relationships among physicians of different denominations and between them and the authorities; the image and status of the converso physician; questions of medical licensing and compensation; attitudes regarding suffering, pain and the care of infants; and the influence of medieval Jewish and Moslem religious law concepts underlying the care and treatment of patients. Other papers relate to the early modern period and to current problems of medical ethics, illustrating the impact of historical approaches on the development of the discipline of medical ethics today.
