As the reconquista thrust into the heart of Spain, the ethnic and cultural makeup of the peninsula grew ever more complex. This program sheds light on those cultural dynamics with the help of architectural case studies and engaging historical narratives. The royal monastery of Las Huelgas de Burgos, founded by Alfonso VIII in the 1180s, is examined along with examples of Benedictine and Clunaic influences. Moving into the 13th century, the program focuses on the ascension of Fernando III, his campaigns against Arab forces, and the retaking of Cordoba and other highly contested territories.
