    This essay investigates the vision of two Jewish scholars of a shared
    Arab-Jewish history at the beginning of the twentieth century.
    The first part of the essay focuses on Abraham Shalom Yahuda’s
    (1877-1951) re-examination of the Andalusian legacy in regard
    to the process of Jewish modernisation with respect to the symbolic
    and the actual return to the East. The second part of the
    essay centers on the work of Yosef Meyouhas (1863-1942), Yahuda’s
    contemporary and life-long friend who translated a collection
    of Biblical stories from the Arab-Palestinian oral tradition, examining
    the significance of this work vis-à-vis the mainstream Zionist
    approach.
