Nirenberg indicates that their use of violence expressed advanced ideals approximately issues as varied as divine background, kinship, intercourse, cash, and sickness, and that their activities have been often contested through competing teams inside their very own society.

Nirenberg's readings of archival and literary assets demonstrates how violence set the phrases and bounds of coexistence for medieval minorities. the actual and contingent nature of this coexistence is underscored by means of the book's juxtapositions--some systematic (for instance, that of the Crown of Aragon with France, Jew with Muslim, medieval with modern), and a few suggestive (such as African ritual uprising with Catalan riots). all through, the ebook questions the applicability of dichotomies like tolerance as opposed to intolerance to the center a while, and indicates the constraints of these analyses that search for the origins of recent eu persecutory violence within the medieval previous.
