Abstract

This is one of two sessions dedicated to the representation of the ‘other’ in Medieval Spain. The ‘other’ appears in many shapes and in different media throughout Medieval Spain, from manuscript illumination to architecture and literature. It is not only the representation of the ‘other’ as Muslims or Jews or as religious concepts, it is also the representation of the ‘otherness’ of women or the ‘otherness’ of the divinity.
