Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Christian-Muslim Relations: A Bibliographical History Volume 6. Western Europe (1500-1600) contains the table of contents, foreword content for David Thomas and a list of Abbreviations. The book presents a short sketch of the historical background against which Christians in western Europe in the 16th century represented and reacted towards Muslims. Their views are mostly found in historical and theological works, but also in a surprising variety of other written forms, including letters, sermons, travelogues, plays and so on. The book traces the attitudes of Western Europeans to Islam, particularly in light of continuing Ottoman expansion, and early despatches sent from Portuguese colonies around the Indian Ocean. It also deals with a discussion of the aftermath of the Spanish Reconquista.

Keywords: Christian-Muslim relations; Spanish Reconquista; western Europe
