Title: Medieval Violence and Modern Tolerance

Hussein Anwar Fancy, a medieval historian, will offer a novel
perspective on religious violence in the Middle Ages that challenges and
redirects contemporary debates about tolerance. His research will center
on a virtually unknown history of the Crusades in which thousands of
Muslim and Christian soldiers were traded to serve in kingdoms of the
other faith: Christian soldiers in service of North African sultans and
Muslim soldiers in service of Catalan kings. These curious exchanges
paradoxically reinforced religious violence, rather than acting to
diminish them. Fancy argues that the language of tolerance, grounded in
assumptions about medieval religion, has impeded both the understanding
of the historical past and the mitigation of conflict. His work will
examine unpublished archival material from the 13th century in an effort
to bring to light rules and limits to the use of violence in the context
of the Crusades and jihad across the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa.
In the resulting articles and books, aimed at audiences in the United
States and abroad, the University of Michigan historian will offer a
revised understanding of violence and religion in order to re-focus
debates on values such as justice and equality, notions that have long
been obscured by the language of tolerance and intolerance.
