This is a study of the economic, social, legal and religious position of three minorities within the medieval Christian kingdom of Hungary. The book demonstrates that the status of such minorities depended not simply on Christian religious tenets, but on a larger framework--including the legal and social system, economic possibilities, and conflicts between kings and the clergy. It also investigates the situation at the gate of Christendom --the frontier with the nomad world--and the way this affected both Christian and non-Christian interaction and Christian ideology.
