Show Summary Details


This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of the relationships discussed in this book. It speaks of intertwined destiny in the context of commensality, implying living together in a shared environment. Whereas much of the focus here is set on the Middle Ages and the early modern era, the text deviates to some degree by going beyond these periods. Together with the introductory chapter, this chapter sets the stage for the major themes that follow thereafter.

Keywords: commensality; intertwined destiny; Golden Age; Convivencia; Dar al-Islam; Dhimma
