Chapter Summary

It is undoubtedly true that the attempt to assess the proper relationship between these apparently contradictory claims, and even perhaps to reconcile them, is, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, ?work in progress?. The question is, though, whether such theological grappling, uncomfortable and unsettling as it still is, for members of both ?faith communities?, is in fact ?a journey into the unknown?. In this chapter, it seems right and proper to offer homage to Richard Fletcher, who worked so resolutely to understand the relationship between the three monotheistic faiths in medieval Spain, by considering two fifteenth-century Castilian authors who produced radical, yet little-studied work on the relationship between two of them, Judaism and Christianity.
