We will examine the variety of social, political, cultural, and religious perspectives held by Muslim communities in the Middle East, Europe, and Africa during this dynamic time period. Students will explore many kinds of evidence, including religious texts, laws, fables, art, and architecture, as they learn about major themes of this period, such as urbanization, pilgrimage, and political conquest.
