In its more than two-thousand-year history, Spain has been the home of Jews, Christians, and Muslims, who over centuries met, loved, shared and fought within its borders with consequences that affected not just the entire Mediterranean basin, but also the rest of the world. This course intends to examine key “historic encounters” between the three versions of monotheism, with constant reference to the richness of past cultural and religious legacy rooted in the Mediterranean region, from the end of the Roman Empire to the birth of the modern era. Cross-listed with REL/HUM/MES 321.
