Riedel, Dagmar A.

Syllabus for a core curriculum course, that satisfies the requirement of an advanced Sacred Texts and Traditions course (THEO 3332) for undergrads at the Rose Hill compus of Fordham University. The course is required to offer an introduction to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam during the era which in the western world is traditionally called the Middle Ages, comprising the millennium between late antiquity and early modernity. In this version the course focuses on medieval Iberia, beginning with the establishment of the Christian Visigothic Kingdom in Toledo in the early sixth century CE and ending with the Spanish colonization of the Americas in the sixteenth century.
