Hell and Its Rivals
Death and Retribution among Christians, Jews, and Muslims in the Early Middle Ages
Alan E. Bernstein

Jacob's Shipwreck
Diaspora, Translation, and Jewish-Christian Relations in Medieval England
Ruth Nisse
Jewish and Christian authors of the High Middle Ages not infrequently came into dialogue or conflict with each other over traditions drawn from ancient writings outside of the bible.
