Whereas Christianity seems to have interested the first generations of Muslims mainly as a theological phenomenon, the emergence of more comprehensive forms of Muslims historiography led to the creation of Arabic texts dealing with the formation of Christianity. The latter's primary focus lay on the Christianisation of the Romasn Empire. However, the premises that set the stage for the emergence of Latin-Christian Europe (Roman hegemony in the West, 'period of migrations' Romano-Germanic successor states) do not seem to habe been fully understood until translated Latin sources were diffused in the Arabic-Islamic world. Hence, most references to the Christianisation of the post-Roman peoples of Western Europe are short and out of chronological context. Continuity is only fully acknowledged in the case of the papacy.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/page/termsofuse"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/32"/> <dcterms:issued>2009</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/32"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/42611/1/Koenig_2-3s5rixq5dwrp2.pdf"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-06-19T12:46:02Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:title>The Christianisation of Latin Europe as Seen by Medieval Arab-Islamic Historiographers</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/42611/1/Koenig_2-3s5rixq5dwrp2.pdf"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-06-19T12:46:02Z</dc:date> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/42611"/> <dc:contributor>König, Daniel</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>König, Daniel</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
