Islam under the crusaders, colonial survival in the thirteenth-century Kingdom of Valencia by Robert I Burns( Book )

22 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in English and held by 1,164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The struggle between Islam and the Crusaders comprised a dialogue of cultures on a broad geographic scale and a wide expanse of time, a perennial seesaw of conquest in the West as in the East. Father Burns' pioneering work on Valencia has demonstrated that the inner reality of this sustained confrontation lies as much in the colonial interims as in the battles.

Medieval colonialism : postcrusade exploitation of Islamic Valencia by Robert I Burns( Book )

31 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first major study of tax structure in pre-Renaissance Spain gives new insight into the condition of the conquered people of postcrusade Valencia. Drawing on tax records, it provides the reader with a fascinating glimpse of life among the thirteenth century Mudejars. By showing the financial links between a medieval ethnic enclave and the dominant society, the author illuminates aspects of intergroup relations that have previously been neglected. This volume is the second in the author's trilogy on Muslim society in Eastern Spain. Originally published in 1976.

Jews in the notarial culture : Latinate wills in Mediterranean Spain, 1250-1350 by Robert I Burns( )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the rapidly transforming world of thirteenth-century Mediterranean Spain, the all-purpose scribe and contract drafter known as the notary became a familiar figure. Most legal transactions of the Roman Law Renaissance were framed in this functionary's shorthand, and for that reason, notarial archives offer a remarkable window on the daily life of this pluri-ethnic society. Robert Burns brings together the testimony of a multitude of documents, and transcribes in full nearly fifty Jewish wills and will-related charters prepared by notaries, to give a never-before-seen view of Jewish society in that place and time

The thirteenth-century monarch Alfonso the Learned of Castile and his contemporary rival James the Conqueror, of Aragon-Catalonia, are key figures who made enduring contributions to Western civilization--although neither is well known to American students. This book explores the contrasts and convergences not only of the kings but of the scholarly-cultural with the military-commercial society. Originally published in 1985.

Burns will make available from the registers of Jaume the Conqueror at the Crown Archives in Barcelona--the most impressive archives of this kind outside the papal series, and the first extensive use of paper by a European government. Volume II begins the four planned volumes of documents, which, along with the introduction that makes up Volume I, will constitute a unique corpus of material on Valencia, its place in an expanding Europe, and its status, after its conquest by Jaume of Aragon-Catalonia, as a colonialist world of Christian settlers ruling a Muslim majority and a large Jewish population. Volume II provides a wealth of information on this frontier society during the six years of its final pacification and incipient Europeanization (1257-1263). Affording numerous insights into the military, religious, economic, legal, bureaucratic, and social evolution of the area, the documents are made accessible to a wide readership by extended paraphrases that

Negotiating cultures : bilingual surrender treaties in Muslim-Crusader Spain under James the Conqueror by Robert I Burns( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James I 'the Conqueror', king of Arago-Catalonia, conquered Mediterranean Spain from Islam during fifty crusading years (1225- 1276). From his many surrender treaties, only two survive in their interlinear bilingual originals, both presented here. Each reflects the fragmentation of post-Almohed Islam, the warrior heroes of Islam carving recalcitrant principalities out of the confusion, the hard-fought local negotiations and the confrontation between two radically opposed mentalities." "The full meaning of these battered and deteriorated bits of parchment emerges only from minute reconstruction of the Arabic and Latinate texts and especially from ever widening circles of changing contexts in each world, an historical kaleidoscope." "Many surprises here await students of medieval Europe, the Islamic West, Spain, the Crusades, diplomacy, Mudejars/Moriscos, and cultural conflict and interchange."--Jacket
