This collection ranges far and wide - from early Christian pilgrims to fifteenth-century Ethiopia; from the Islamisation of the eastern Mediterranean to Reformation Germany - to investigate the multiple causes and characteristics of religious conversion. By probing continuities and fissures, particularly in the Jewish, Muslim and Christian experiences, the volume extends the range of conversion to focus on matters less commonly examined, such as the meaning of sacred space, bodies, gender, and the ways conversion has been understood and narrated.
