New graphic history: Debating Truth

Debating Truth: The Barcelona Disputation of 1263 by Nina Caputo, the latest book in the Oxford University Press series of graphic histories, is out now. It explores the theological debate, held before King James I of Aragon, between Nahmanides and the Dominican Friar Paul, the relationship between Christians and Jews in medieval Spain, and how the same event can be understood in contradictory ways by different people. Read more about it at OUP's website or on Amazon, where you can also view the first pages of the book.
