In 711 Visigothic Spain was conquered by Muslim Moors, who established a successful and powerful rule, lasting until the end of the 15th century. For seven centuries the Christian Spanish fought against, allied with, taught to, and learned from the Muslim population of Al-Andalus. This course will explore the history of Spain, focusing on the close cultural relationship between Christian, Jews and Muslim, forged throughout the centuries, until the final collapse of Al-Andalus and the establishment of the Spanish Inquisition.
