Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a short description of the book Liber denudationis siue ostensionis aut Patefaciens, 'The book of denuding or exposing'; Contrarietas alfolica on Christian-Muslim relations. The Liber denudationis is a Christian polemical and apologetic treatise against Islam very typical of the genre and clearly based heavily on earlier eastern Arab Christian models. Though it survives in a single, late manuscript, the Liber denudationis was one of the two or three works that most influenced the Latin- Christian approach to Islam in the high and later Middle Ages. This is because it exercised an enormous influence on Riccoldo da Monte di Croce's early 14th-century Contra legem Sarracenorum, which itself survives in many manuscripts and was widely read and cited.
