Pierre-Yves Beaurepaire est professeur d'histoire moderne à l'Université de Sophia-Antipolis. Directeur du centre de la méditerranée moderne et contemporaine, il coordonne depuis 2009 le programme CITERE (Circulation, Territoires et Réseaux en Europe de l'Âge classique aux Lumières).
Part One of this volume examines the history of relations between people of different Christian confessions in western and central Europe. Part Two then looks at the relations between Western and Eastern Orthodox Christianity, Islam and Judaism in the vast area that extends around the Mediterranean from the Iberian Peninsula to western Asia. Each Part ends with a Conclusion that considers the wider implications of the preceding essays and points the way toward future research.
Bringing together scholars from Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and America this volume embodies an international collaboration of unusual range. Its comparative approach will be of interest to scholars of Religion and History, particularly those with an emphasis on interreligious relations and religious tolerance.
