Medieval Encounters is intended as a cross-cultural, cross-
disciplinary forum for discussion among scholars and students around the
world about the intersections and interactions of Jewish, Christian and
Muslim culture in the period from the fourth through the fifteenth
centuries C.E. The subjects covered are culture in its
widest definition, including History, Languages, Literature,
Medicine, Music, Philosophy, Religion, Science, and Art.

All articles should be submitted both in hard copy and on computer diskette
in Microsoft Word, Wordperfect or ASCII format for
either MS-DOS or Macintosh based computers. Articles will be in
English but may contain citations in any Classical, European, or Near
Eastern language. Transliteration of non-Romanized terms will
conform to the usual system employed by journals published by E. J.
Brill. All maps, diagrams, charts and photographs will be submitted
in camera-ready form. If there is any need to obtain copyright
permission for the use of photographs and other materials, it will be
the responsibility of the author to obtain such permissions in
advance, although the editors will gladly assist in the process.

Medieval Encounters is intended to promote discussion and dialogue across
cultural, linguistic and disciplinary boundaries about the
interactions of Jewish, Christian and Muslim culture during the period from
the fourth through the fifteenth centuries C.E. Culture is
defined in its widest form to include history, languages, literature,
medicine, music, philosophy, religion, science and art. The
geographic limits of inquiry will be bounded only by the limits in
which the three traditions interact and intersect. After
considerations of scholarly merit and contributions made to
knowledge, articles will be selected on the basis of how they promote our
understanding of Jewish, Christian and Muslim interactions in the
medieval period. Articles may deal with specific texts, events, or
phenomena as well as theories of interpretation and analysis. The
journal will actively promote a representative spread across all the
humanistic disciplines and from all scholarly communities. All
articles will be reviewed by members of the editorial board or by
such scholars as the editors choose to insure a fair and objective
evaluation of each contribution. In addition to articles, the journal
will publish reviews of significant books and monographs which fall
within the purview of the journal. The editors will strive to include a
short notice or a full review for all major works which are concerned
with the interactions of the three traditions. The goal is to provide a
handy reference of recent scholarly activity for those medievalists
involved in cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary research.
