Abstract

Examining the relations between Mamluk administrators, local dhimmi populations, pilgrims, and Western powers, this panel provides a multi-faceted discussion of 14th-century views on the religious ‘other’. Netta Amir explores the effects of the onset of Mamluk rule on the changing geography of pilgrimage. Jon Paul Heyne connects experiences in the Levant to the wider Mediterranean by examining the effects of Western religious-political discord on the Christians in Jerusalem. Nicky Tsougarakis discusses views on pilgrimage in Late Medieval Jerusalem.
