This vibrant collected volume considers the question: how, exactly, did the relationship between trade and religion develop historically? Examining a wide range of commercial exchanges across religious boundaries around the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic and Indian Oceans during the second millennium, it offers a variety of perspectives on this intriguing and surprisingly neglected subject.

This is an important addition to the growing literature on long-distance trade and interactions in the early modern world and deserves a wide audience. Its comprehensive coverage and rigour result in a highly recommended volume for specialists on European expansion and cross-cultural exchanges. * Mariana P. Candido, European History Quarterly * This collective volume is a gift. Thanks to the plurality of its approach and vision, to the variety of themes it gathers together, and to the numerous regions and periods it covers, it is a must for anyone interested in this area of study - also because it urges the reader to consider how a global history of the intersection of religion and economics in pre-modern commerce is both possible and necessary ... I highly recommend to all scholars and libraries
interested in the state of the art in this field. * Cornel Zwierlein, Mediterranean Historical Review *
