Introduction : "Les visages de Janus"

Abstract : This workshop dedicated to relations between people of different faiths is focused on the links between majority and minorities in Europe between the 12th and 17th centuries. From the Iberic Peninsula to Byzantium, from Sicily to northern France, the artistic influences, commercial exchanges and theological debates that occurred, whether those involved were willing or reluctant participants in them, are examined here by historians both medieval and modern. Janus's face seems to symbolize perfectly these ambivalent relationships, which ran the whole gamut from actively being sought after to being sternly discouraged.
