Reconquest? A History of Medieval Spain - HSTY2695

Year - 2018

Spain's history in the Middle Ages was shaped by continual warfare between Christianity and Islam, but also by more peaceable relations. From this complex story historians have created opposing myths of 'Reconquest' and 'convivencia', concepts that still resonate in Spanish society today. This unit reassesses both notions and explores more deeply the fascinating dynamics of the Iberian Medieval world.
