In the Mediterranean region, the experience of Catholic Reform was made complicated by the presence of and interaction with religious minorities, particularly Jews and Muslims either living within Catholic territories or engaged in warfare against them. In this panel, we would like to explore how secular and ecclesiastical leaders and ordinary Catholics interacted with the pluralistic world of the Mediterranean in the post-Tridentine era and examine whether or not Tridentine Reforms had a significant impact on how Catholics encountered the “other” in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
We invite submissions for a panel examining the interaction between Catholics and religious minorities in the Mediterranean in the post-Tridentine era. Possible topics include conversion, holy wars and issues of state policy, episcopal or inquisitorial efforts to deal with relations with religious minorities, etc. Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words and a brief CV to Celeste McNamara (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Rosemary Lee (email@example.com) no later than March 1.
