The History of the Jews in the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem

Front Cover
This is the story of the Jewish community in Palestine from the Crusader conquest in 1099 until the fall of the Latin Kingdom in 1291. Drawing on a wealth of documentation, much of it largely unknown to western scholars, Professor Prower examines the working of the community's internal organization within the framework of the Crusader Kingdom's institutions; their attitude to the Crusader conquerors, as well as to the neighboring Muslim rulers; contacts between the rulers and members of the community: and in rare instances, cases of interfaith relationships.
