In 711 Spain was conquered by Muslim Moors, who established a successful and powerful Caliphate. For seven centuries the Christian Spanish fought against, allied with, taught, and learned from, the Muslim population of Al-Andalus. This course will explore the history of Spain from c.1000 to c.1500, focusing on the close cultural relationship between Christian and Muslim, forged throughout the centuries, until the final collapse of Al-Andalus and the establishment of the Spanish Inquisition.
