Summary
Examines a long-buried chapter of European history: the rise and fall of Islamic culture in what is now Spain and Portugal. See how Moorish advances in mathematics, astronomy, art, and agriculture helped propel the West out of the Dark Ages and into the Renaissance. What emerges is a richly detailed portrait of a sensuous, inquisitive, and remarkably progressive Islamic culture in Christian Europe.
