This conference will explore the nature of medieval exegesis as an interfaith discourse in all three traditions during the High and especially the Late Middle Ages (roughly from the 11th to the 15th Centuries), paying particular attention to the exegetical production of scholars in the Western Mediterranean. Seeking to move beyond the best-known and most obvious examples of interfaith exegesis, this conference seeks to explore the following questions: -Who was reading exegesis from other faith traditions?-In what contexts did exegetes collaborate across confessional divisions? -Was the interfaith discourse of medieval exegetes always a polemical discourse, or was there also a counter-tradition of "irenical" exegesis? -How did the practical and technical demands of reading foreign scriptures and commentaries affect exegetes' views and traditions? -In what way did exegetical practice "essentialize" or "de-essentialize" their practitioners? -How did individual exegetes working with foreign commentaries negotiate their relationship with the larger traditions to which they themselves belonged? -How did these issues manifest themselves in the physical practice of manuscript preparation and copying or in the subsequent impact and dissemination of such copies?Contact: Ryan SzpiechRomance Languages & Judaic StudiesUniversity of Michigan4108 MLB812 E.
