Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a short description of the work Dialexis,'Dialogue of the monk Euthymius with a Saracen'on Christian-Muslim relations. Almost all the six manuscripts give this work different titles. In addition, Papabasileios and Trapp quote the manuscripts in different ways, producing a confusing number of variants. The Dialexis is consistent with the mainstream of polemical works of the time against Islam. Its apologetic arguments and the charges it reproduces against Islam had been well known in Byzantium for centuries. It is remarkable that the relatively short Dialexis presents a combination of an apologetic and a polemical part, like the much longer Anatrope tou Koraniou of Nicetas of Byzantium.

Keywords: Christian-Muslim relations; Dialexis; Euthymius the monk
