The concept of identity is one of the most debated in social science. Coexistence between Jews, Muslims and Christians in the Mediterranean during the Medieval and Modern era is a perfect geographical and chronological setting to question the utility of this concept. Thanks to some European researchers’ works, a global revision of the concept is analysed in this book through history, history of arts and literature. Which role will religions and politics play in the re-affirmation of Mediterranean peoples’ different identities? Which myths marked religious otherness studies? Which role will art play as a catalyst for those conflicts? These are some of the focal questions of this book, and the authors will try to answer.
