The introduction to this critical edition offers a new examination of the historical probability of the love affair of Alfonso VIII, King of Castile, and a Jewess. It further traces the peregrinations of that theme in literature across periods and national traditions. This edition of Las paces de los reyes y judía de Toledo, through its situation of the text within a diachronic perspective, ushers Alfonso VIII and his Raquel onto the world stage.
