What Can Medieval Spain Teach Us?

Throughout the Middle Ages, Jews, Christians and Muslims lived together in Spanish society and produced a vibrant, shared culture. In this lecture, Professor Fancy will survey both the history of medieval Spain and the debates that have surrounded it. How did a tradition of tolerance and cooperation come about at this juncture of history? Looking back on this era and its people today, what lessons can we draw from their approach to social strife, tolerance and prosperity?
