This course, particularly relevant to contemporary issues, offers an overview of the historical development of the laws relative to the Jews in Sunni and Shi’ite legal works, followed by illustrations of specific cases. The Jewish angle will concentrate on the medieval discussion about the status of Muslims in regard to their being idolaters or not, and Muslims in the responsa literature, followed by the study of common denominators, such as ritually fit food (halal/kasher), and examples of collaboration between Muslim Shari’a courts and Jewish Batei Din.
