Rate this:
Incorporating examples of building design and urban planning from the 12th century, this program studies the confrontations that took place between Christian and Muslim cultures as the reconquista of Spain progressed. Viewers will encounter the medieval city of Cordoba-the birthplace not only of King Al-Mutamid but of the Islamic philosopher known as Averroes, whom many scholars believe to be the founder of Western secular thought. The Christian recovery of Toledo is also explored, focusing on the mosques of Las Tornerias, castles with distinctly Arabian architecture, and other instructive cases.
