Product Description


Metcalfe ... deserves the gratitude of everyone who teaches medieval Mediterranean history and has wondered why Sicily has been so underrepresented, in comparison to Spain and Syria, when it comes to readable surveys in English. The author's ability to access sources in all of the relevant languages permits an unusually balanced treatment that gives as much attention to Arabic as it does to Greek and Latin documentation ... A useful survey of a complicated subject that deserves the attention of our students. --American Historical Review

[The Muslims of Medieval Italy] should be much welcomed by English-language readers ... This book, focused on Muslims, amply shows the fascinating history of medieval Sicily and South Italy with their many layers of different cultures, and reveals various aspects of cross-cultural activities under the Normans. --The English Historical Review --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
Excellent book. I am a PhD student in Medieval Italian Literature who was looking for a good book on the Muslim influence in Sicliy during the Middle Ages. This book is thorough and very easy to read and follow, not only for students but also will be very interesting to the general reader. Highly recommend.
