    Same could be said of Norman Sicily - Roger ll if I remember correctly, one of the Hautevilles anyway.

    The Ornament of the World: How Muslims, Jews and Christians Created a Culture of Tolerance in Medieval Spain.
    This title discounts itself: The Moors inherited the Liber Iudiciorum and simply allowed it to continue, apart from womens right to inherit and womens right to choose a spouse.
    Otherwise they simply maintained the status quo.

    started a topic Andalusia

    Andalusia

    Good evening,

    Planning to visit Andalusia in a short while. Looking to get a good understanding of its Moorish history through some literature.
    Did some searches on Amazon and came up with two books: one written by Richard Fletcher and another by Maria Rosa Menocal => The Ornament of the World: How Muslims, Jews and Christians Created a Culture of Tolerance in Medieval Spain

    Haven't bought either one; was looking to see what you think would be the best reference book on the topic ?
    Any guidance would be apperciated

    I am more interested more in military and geo-political themes rather than religious and cultural ones
Working...
