The Crescent and the Rose: Islam and England during the Renaissance (New York: Oxford University Press, 1937) is a book by Samuel Claggett Chew.

Excerpt from the preface:

"The subject of this book suggested itself long ago when the writer was engaged upon a study of the only English poet of renown who has ever had first-hand experiences of the life of the Levant or come into intimate relations with its peoples. We have here to do, however, not with the Age of Byron but with the English Renaissance. As approximate temporal limits (occasionally transcended) have been chosen the year 1453 and the year 164:2, that is, the period from the downfall of the Byzantine Empire to the downfall of the older English drama."
