In Where Three Worlds Met, Sarah Davis-Secord investigates Sicily's place within the religious, diplomatic, military, commercial, and intellectual networks of the Mediterranean by tracing the patterns of travel, trade, and communication among Christians (Latin and Greek), Muslims, and Jews. By looking at the island across this long expanse of time and during the periods of transition from one dominant culture to another, Davis-Secord uncovers the patterns that defined and redefined the broader Muslim-Christian encounter in the Middle Ages.

Recensioner i media

"Sarah Davis-Secord illuminates both the intrinsic importance of Sicily and also the roles it played in larger transformations of the Mediterranean Basin." * AramcoWorld * "Davis-Secord explores-imaginatively and successfully-the travel and communication networks produced and experienced by its Byzantine, Muslim, and Norman conquerors." * Choice * "Davis-Secord's book represents a valuable contribution to our understanding of medieval Sicily. The synthesis of such a vast body of source material and its situation within the most recent advances in the historiography of the region is quite an achievement indeed." * Early Medieval Europe * "Davis-Secord's work makes a significant contribution to the way we ought to frame our questions about the medieval Mediterranean and Sicily, in particular." * Reading Religion * "Where Three Worlds Met is important for helping to understand medieval Sicily. It covers a sweeping chronological scope, not just synthesizing a broad range of scholarship, but also crafting a new lens through which we can view the island." * The Medieval Review * "A very interesting book.... Few scholars today would have dared to undertake such an ambitious project, and students in particular will learn a great deal from this thoughtful and stimulating work." * American Historical Review *
