Differing from early modern Christian historiography, contemporary Jewish authors painted an idealized picture of Muslim rulers, as Martin Jacobs shows in his analysis of 16th- and 17th- century Hebrew chronicles. At the same time, he discusses whether Jewish historical writing of that time continued in the medieval tradition or echoed Renaissance patterns.
