Read some or all of the readings posted- and linked below this post in the main Moodle course page. Then address the following topic in an essay of about 3-5 pages (800-1500 words). It must be double-spaced, 11-12 point font. I would prefer to have it typed and emailed or shared in Word365, but if necessary a clear, well-lit, high-resolution (full size) picture of each page, written neatly in dark blue or black ink, will work. Please include a list of your sources and identify which information is from which source in your writing.
Describe the relationship between Jews and Christians in mediaeval Europe, and account for it as best you can. Do your best to give a nuanced and balanced response that considers historical perspectives and ethics, is based on the sources, and is fair to all concerned.
