This session looks at three different ethnic groups and explores the nature of their interactions with the wider community. The first paper looks at the ways in which military orders in the Iberian Peninsula regulated and managed the presence of Muslims in the lands under their jurisdiction, and focuses on the representations of these communities, men and women, in the records. The second paper explores the extension and typology of social networks of Jewish women in Barcelona through notarial records (1348-1391) looking at chronologies, types, and volume of transactions. The final paper focuses on Latin settlements in Byzantine lands after the Fourth Crusade and uses legal sources to offer an evaluation of the ways in which Latin lords changed their administrative and political practices in order to adapt to this new environment.
