by Jerrilynn Denise Dodds, Al Andalus Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Al Andalus book, From 711 when they arrived on the Iberian Peninsula until 1492 when scholars contribute a wide-ranging series of essays and catalogue entries which are fully companion to the 373 illustrations (324 in color) of the spectacular art and architecture of the nearly vanished culture. 91/2x121/2 they were expelled by Ferdinand and Isabella, the Muslims were a powerful force in al-Andalus, as they called the Iberian lands they controlled. This awe-inspiring volume, which accompanies a major exhibition presented at the Alhambra in Granada and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, is devoted to the little-known artistic legacy of Islamic Spain, revealing the value of these arts as part of an autonomous culture and also as a presence with deep significance for both Europe and the Islamic world.

Andalus

by Edwyn Hole, Andalus Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Andalus book, In this book, the product of five years' residence in Andalusia, the author opens up an exciting and colourful period in history that inexplicably has never attracted English historians or romantic novelists, although it offers material for a score of books. "Andalus" is the name under which the Arabs knew Spain, when the Muslim Empire extended from the Indus to the Pillars of Hercules. It was conquered with surprising ease in the eighth century, and remained in Muslim hands till the fifteenth. It attained its full flowering in the tenth century, when the all-powerful Caliph Abd al-Rahman reigned in Cordoba and his city-palace of al-Zahra out-rivalled the fabulous court of Harun al-Rashid in Baghdad. Andulus knew a degree of civilization in comparison with which the contemporary Christian kingdoms of Western Europe were still in the dark ages. After a brief historical outline, the author deals at length with the fascinating and full-blooded mixture of races that made up the population, with their government and diplomacy, their attitude towards women and slaves, their sports and pastimes, and their passion for poetry. He closes with a portrait-gallery of five outstanding and very dissimilar Andalusians, and thus rounds off a most knowledgeable and vivid account of a country and a people unique in Western Europe.

The Literature Of Al Andalus

by María Rosa Menocal, The Literature Of Al Andalus Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Literature Of Al Andalus book, The Literature of Al-Andalus is an exploration of the culture of Iberia, present-day Spain and Portugal, during the period when it was an Islamic, mostly Arabic-speaking territory, from the eighth to the thirteenth century, and in the centuries following the Christian conquest when Arabic continued to be widely used. The volume embraces many other related spheres of Arabic culture including philosophy, art, architecture and music. It also extends the subject to other literatures - especially Hebrew and Romance literatures - that burgeoned alongside Arabic and created the distinctive hybrid culture of medieval Iberia. Edited by an Arabist, an Hebraist and a Romance scholar, with individual chapters compiled by a team of the world's leading experts of Islamic Iberia, Sicily and related cultures, this is a truly interdisciplinary and comparative work which offers a interesting approach to the field.

by Manuela Marin, The Formation Of Al Andalus Part 1 Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Formation Of Al Andalus Part 1 book, These two volumes present a conspectus of current research on the history and culture of early medieval Spain and Portugal, from the time of the Arab conquest in 711 up to the fall of the caliphate. They trace the impact of Islamisation on the pre-existing Roman and Visigothic political and social structures, the continuing interaction between Christian and Muslim, and describe the particular development and characteristics of Muslim Spain- al-Andalus. Together, they comprise 38 articles, of which 32 have been translated into English specially for this publication. The first volume focuses on political and social history, and looks in detail at settlement patterns and urbanisation; the second examines questions of language and covers the brilliant cultural and intellectual history of the period.

Christians In Al Andalus 711 1000

by Ann Rosemary Christys, Christians In Al Andalus 711 1000 Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Christians In Al Andalus 711 1000 book, Our current image of the Christian population of al-Andalus after AD711 reflects the way history has been written. The Christians almost disappeared from the historical record as the historians of the conquering Muslims concentrated on the glories of the Ummayads.This book reconsiders, through their own words, the fate of the Christians of al-Andalus. The texts discusses two chronicles in Latin on the fate of Hispania, the problematic accounts of Christian martyrs in Cordoba, a Muslim historian's account of how his Christian ancestors survived the conquest and other texts reflecting the acculturation of Christians into Islamic society.
