Musical instruments from Middle Ages, by Eduardo Paniagua.
In the postvisigothic Iberian Peninsula the different communities professing the three monotheistic religions did coexist: Jews, Christians and Muslims. They had settled in the different Christian kingdoms and in the Muslim Al-Andalus. Historically, the two major communities had been engaged in fierce battles over the political and cultural hegemony of the Peninsula. The Jewish people lived, for better or worse, on both sides of the border between Christians and Muslims, until, during the 12th century, most of them moved to Christian territory under royal protection.
