    Aims and Scope

    The use of an alphabetic script links the Jewish, Christian and Muslim cultures in the Middle Ages. There have always been intensive interrelationships between the religions of these cultures, inter alia through translations of important (sacred) texts. Cultural transmissions such as these also involved conflicts of translation, as they introduced reference texts which were binding on religion, culture and law and thus excluded other reference texts. Karl Bertau inquires into the reasons and effects of these processes and examines the forms of cultural radiation in the context of the history of literature, religion, society and the economy.

    "Beeindruckend ist der weite Prospekt, den Bertau entwirft, und der von seiner immensen, tiefschürfenden Belesenheit über alle Fachgrenzen hinweg Zeugnis ablegt."
    Martin Przybilski in: Archiv für das Studium der neueren Sprachen und Literaturen 1/2008

    "Ein >Experiment< und ein Buch sui generis."
    Dieter Kartschoke in: Germanistik 3-6/2006

    "Bertau's intercultural approach is as laudable as it is necessary, and will hopefully spark fürther exploration in the same way that Deutsche Literatur im europäischen Mittelalter did."
    Bettina Bildhauer in: Medium Aevum 1/2006
