The History of the Jews in the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem
Clarendon Press, 1988 - 310 pages
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.
