Al-Andalus: Tolerance, Culture and Violence in Medieval Spain


Hannah Arendt

Between 711 and 1492, Islamic governments ruled over varying swaths of the Iberian Peninsula. Muslim Spain, or al-Andalus, still holds a powerful grip on the modern imagination as a time and place of religious tolerance—a “golden age” in which Muslims, Jews, and Christians peacefully coexisted and culturally thrived. In this four-week course taught by Dr. Rachel Stein, students will explore this common perception of al-Andalus by examining primary sources produced by Muslims, Christians and Jews in medieval Iberia that bear witness to inter- and intra-faith relations: poetry, treatises, laws, chronicles, architecture, and manuscripts. What was the relationship between religion, language, and culture in the societies of al-Andalus? And to what extent should we use past societies like those of al-Andalus as mirrors or models to think through the present?

In order to attend the Al-Andalus course sessions, you must enroll for the entire course.
