LECTURE NOTES TO ACCOMPANY THE 6-LECTURE VIDEO SERIES. Dr. William J. Neidinger has prepared a 6-lecture adult education series on video, “Islam, Christianity and Judaism: Centuries of Contact, Conflict and Confrontation.” The series begins with an account of the competition between salvationist Judaism and Christianity for converts, then traces the earliest encounters between Christians and Jews and the followers of the new faith, Islam. Dr. Neidinger examines the ever-changing dynamics between toleration and persecution during the Middle Ages in Europe, and highlights the ideas and innovations that flowed to Europe from Islamic lands that helped initiate the European Renaissance. The final lecture in the series deals with the interactions of the three faiths in the vast Ottoman Empire. This new volume is a companion to the video series, and comprises lecture notes in outline format. Notes are illustrated with thumbnail color photos, diagrams, maps and charts referenced in the video programs. It is not a stand-alone account of the history of Islam, Christianity and Judaism, but is meant to be used as a study guide by viewers of the video series. LECTURE TITLES: 1. The Followers of the Messiah vs The Men of the Temple 2. First Encounters: The Prophet from the Desert 3. In the Courts of the Norman Kings 4. Spain during the Reconquest 5.
