AbstractThe project 'Rethinking the Medieval Frontier' has been presenting comparative research on frontier spaces and practices at the IMC since 2015. This session mounts a broad comparative of the political construction of frontiers in early Mughal India and the emplacement of frontiers in social practice in the Christian-Muslim boundary zone of the medieval Iberian Peninsula. The session and the previous one will be wrapped up by a response considering such frontiers of practice from the point of view of religion.
