It is not an exhaustive list, but is restricted to some of the works in English available at the University of Kansas Watson Library. Although some older classics have been included, most of the items are relatively modern, and you will find that the library contains still other material. The paucity of sources reflects the fact that a limited number of Spanish materials have been translated.] Alfonso X and the Jews: an edition of and commentary on Siete partidas 7.24 "De los judios". by Dwayne E.
