Reconquest? A history of medieval Spain - HSTY3705

Year - 2019

Spain's medieval history was shaped by warfare between Christianity and Islam, but also by more peaceable relations. From this complex story emerged the opposing myths of 'Reconquest' and 'convivencia', still resonating in Spanish society today. This unit reassesses both notions and explores the fascinating dynamics of the Iberian medieval world.
