Nina Caputo's New Graphic History on Medieval Religion

The History Department congratulates Dr. Nina Caputo on her new graphic history, published with Oxford University Press, entitled Debating Truth: The Barcelona Disputation of 1263.  This creative blend of art, primary sources, and historical commentary offers a unique perspective on the debate between a Dominican Friar  and the Jewish scholar Nahmanides over the Messiah as it concerned Christianity and Judaism.   The arguments took place in front of a gallery of judges in Barcelona, and Debating Truth offers a fascinating insight into the relationship between these two religions in Medieval Spain.
