"Jews, Christian Society, and Royal Power in Medieval Barcelona traces the development of the Jewish community of Barcelona from 1050 to 1300. Elka Klein challenges the common perception that medieval Jews lived in relative isolation from the surrounding society, arguing for the existence of significant cultural common ground between Jews and Christians, and proposing a new model for understanding Jewish communal autonomy and the relationship between Jews and their rulers."--BOOK JACKET.
