Moorish Mosaic: The allure of Morocco and Andalusia

Saturday, 09 November 2019 10.30am to Saturday, 09 November 2019 11.30am

Venue: Centenary Auditorium
Lecturer: Brian Ladd

The sublime architecture of the Moors, with its imprint of Islam, has hugely contributed to the allure of Moorish history and artistic expression. Discover how an outstanding cultural legacy found in Andalusia (southern Spain) and Morocco, incorporating Berber and Arab traditions, developed in the wake of Islam’s spread across north Africa and the Iberian Peninsula, in the 7th and 8th centuries CE. This vibrant culture lasted for up to 800 years in Al-Andalus, influencing the destiny of Spain, and up to the modern era in Morocco.
