Figuring Racism in Medieval Christianity

Lindsay Kaplan

  • First book to argue that medieval theological discourses produce a racist religious identity
  • Distinguishes itself from other analyses of pre-modern race by focusing on inferiority as a necessary element of racism
  • Demonstrates how racist ideas circulate and transfer from one group to another
  • Argues that a racist construction of Jewish identity contributes to the racialization of Muslims and Africans
