ABSTRACT
The article explores the treatment of foreigners in old Europe as seen by Arab and Muslim travelers in selected medieval texts. The author argues that the notion of either the fear, or the welcoming of strangers did not develop into a fixed cliché, or a stereotype. He also discusses the laws by which citizens should manage all reception of foreign visitors, and dispatch of their own countrymen to foreign parts.
