In a series of historical vignettes highlighting the cultural achievements and religious tolerance of the Andalucian kingdom, Professor Menocal presents a portrait of a golden era in Spain during Europe's Dark Ages, from the eighth century until the repression of non-Christians in 1492. Menocal argues that because of this period of relative stability and peaceful coexistence between the three faiths, the arts and sciences flourished, prefiguring the Renaissance.
