Abstract : Starting with the stark contrast in treatment afforded to the two groups in the Fuero of Nájera, we explore the status of Jews and Muslims in the Rioja and in neighbouring regions of Northern Spain. The Jewish minority appears in greater numbers and in earlier periods than has been reflected in recent scholarship. Nájera provides a particularly rich example of this, with abundant references to Jews owning land in the city's suburbs cheek by jowl with Christian neighbours from the early eleventh century onwards. By contrast, we have very few references to Muslims in the region after its conquest by the Christians around 925. It seems probable that there was in fact no free Muslim population in the Upper Rioja region during the early medieval period; the first Mudéjar communities emerging only after the fall of Calahorra in the Lower Rioja in 1045.
