Publisher's Summary

Widely hailed as a revelation of a "lost" golden age, this history brings to vivid life the rich and thriving culture of medieval Spain, where, for more than seven centuries, Muslims, Jews, and Christians lived together in an atmosphere of tolerance, and literature, science, and the arts flourished.

    "Important lessons for today on tolerance and intolerance"

    Import topic for today. As I finish The Ornament of the World and sit down to Immediately reread it I must admit that I found the story difficult to follow. Perhaps due to the dense topic, perhaps the writing style. Worth the read and reread though
