The ninth and tenth centuries are maybe the most active in controversial and intellectual exchanges in the whole history of Christian-Muslim relations. In Basra, Baghdad and other towns of the Arab heartlands followers of the two faiths were employing a common language for maybe the first time and, even more importantly, they were discovering a common conceptuality and grammar of discourse.
