9780300106091: The Arts of Intimacy: Christians, Jews and Muslims in the Making of Castilian Culture

Named a Book of the Year by the Times Literary Supplement, this lavishly illustrated work explores the vibrant interaction among different and sometimes opposing cultures, and how their contacts with one another transformed them all. It chronicles the tumultuous history of Castile in the wake of the Christian capture of the Islamic city of Tulaytula, now Toledo, in the eleventh century and traces the development of Castilian culture as it was forged in the new intimacy of Christians with the Muslims and Jews they had overcome.


The authors paint a portrait of the culture through its arts, architecture, poetry and prose, uniquely combining literary and visual arts. Concentrating on the eleventh and twelfth centuries, the book reveals the extent to which Castilian identity is deeply rooted in the experience of confrontation, interaction, and at times union with Hebrew and Arabic cultures during the first centuries of its creation. Abundantly illustrated, the volume serves as a splendid souvenir of southern Spain; beautifully written, it illuminates a culture deeply enriched by others.

Review:

 “The art, the architecture, and the poetry produced in the medieval Iberian peninsula are of such astonishing quality that a survey, especially when it is as intelligent and well presented as this one, can hardly fail both to illuminate and instruct.” –J.H. Elliott, New York Review of Books (J.H. Elliott New York Review of Books 2009-08-13)

"Jerrilynn D.Dodds’, Maria Rosa Menocal and Abigail Krasner’s Balbale’s Arts of Intimacy: Christians, Jews, and Muslims in the Making of Castilian Culture stands out in every respect: it is challenging, thorough, and compelling. Its importance lies in conveying the unique cultural and linguistic polyphony of the nascent Castilian culture. Iconographic testimonies from architecture, epigraphy and calligraphy orchestrate the historical voices expressed in an unprecedentedly rich multilingual poetry. A startling and provocative book that puts an end to any essentialist claim to be laid on this exceptional part of Europe."—Angelika Neuwirth (Angelika Neuwirth)

"A delightful blend of poetry and solid science. How a nation was born out of fascination for the enemy it was victoriously fighting, gaining momentum 'with each meal shared, or bridle admired, each textile or ivory box received in tribute', and with each story told."—Gabriel Martinez-Gros
(Gabriel Martinez-Gros)

"All Medievalists should welcome and treasure this splendid book. Here we see, in an innovative and eminently convincing perspective, the unique phenomenon of medieval Iberia, as a collaborative and also as a conflictive creation of Castilians belonging to the three religions. As much for scholars interested in literature and language, as for those concerned with art and architecture, this book will be 'must' reading. Dodds, Menocal, and Krasner Balbale deserve our thanks and our congratulations."—Samuel G. Armistead
(Samuel G. Armistead)

The Arts of Intimacy creates a composite close-up of a part of Spain usually associated with rock-solid Catholic oppression and authority...explored here subtly and richly.”--Times Literary Supplement
(Marina Warner Times Literary Supplement 2009-11-27)

“The compelling story of the complex entangling of Christian, Muslim, and Jewish history, culture, literature and art in medieval Iberia has been told many times before...But it has never been told like this...A rich tapestry of a book that brings to vivid life the dialectic of acculturation and assimilation in which medieval Spain’s three religious groups were enmeshed.”--Jill Ross, Times Higher Education (UK)
(Jill Ross Times Higher Education (UK) 2009-09-03)

“...beautiful and gorgeously illustrated. . . .this is a fascinating trawl through a forgotten time.”--Catholic Herald
(Catholic Herald)

"Richly illustrated. . . . Deliberately accessible. . . . Through its clear narrative and its elegant style , and thanks to its affordable price, Arts of Intimacy works to render a fascinating and complex topic more widely accessible to a general readership."—Andrea Weisl-Shaw, Medium Aevum (Andrea Weisl-Shaw Medium Aevum)

"Beautifully written and lavishly illustrated, the book represents a distinguished contribution to our understanding of the cosmopolitan world of medieval Iberia."--Catholic Historical Review
(Catholic Historical Review)

"[The Arts of Intimacy] unfolds as a complex interlacing of literary, visual, and historical evidence that challenges the idealized notion of medieval Iberian convivencia, or peaceful coexistence, with nuanced interpretations of crossdisciplinary evidence. The text's high points are thoroughly enjoyable."—María Judith Feliciano, Speculum--A Journal of Medieval Studies (María Judith Feliciano Speculum--A Journal of Medieval Studies)

Descripción Yale UP, 2008. Estado de conservación: New. From the 11th to the 14th century a unique cultural and linguistic interaction brought together Arabic, Hebrew and Latin traditions in the formation of medieval Castile. The Arts of Intimacy explores Castilian culture, with excerpts from literary texts and abundant illustrations of architecture, epigraphy and calligraphy, to reveal the extent of this cross-fertilization, from chess, the number zero and multilingual literary forms to the Alhambra's intricate geometric artwork.

Descripción Yale University Press, United States, 2008. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This splendidly illustrated book is a history of medieval Castile from the 11th to 14th centuries, told from a largely cultural standpoint. Whilst the political narrative of these centuries may emphasise war and intolerance - the inexorable forward march of the reconquista, the authors argue that the cultural record tells a very different story. They emphasise the concept of hybridisation, and show how interaction rather than antagonism more often informed cultural transactions between Christians, Muslims and Jews in the great cities of the region, focusing on Toledo, Seville and Cordoba. The extraordinary architecture of the region receives probably the most attention, but none of the visual arts miss out, and there are also extensive discussions and translations of the poetry and written culture of the three communities. A beautiful testament to a unique artistic culture, and an engaging presentation of the growing argument for a surpringly mixed cultural world. Nº de ref. de la librería POW9780300106091
