“Córdoba and Muslim Spain: culture and tolerance”

The Embassy of Spain and the Cervantes Institute will organize a conference by Pieter van Heijnsbergen who will speak about his book “Cordoba and Muslim Spain: culture and tolerance”, recently published in Dutch (“Cordoba; een samenleving van moslims, christenen en joden in Moors Spanje”) by Aspekt B.V.

This book deals with the history of Spain, occupied by Muslims between A.D. 711 and 1492. It describes the cultural development, mutual tolerance and co-operation between Christians, Jews and Muslims living in Spain in that period.

The lecture will be held in Dutch (with simultaneous translation into Spanish) at the Cervantes Institute in Utrecht on Thursday, 30 November 2017, at 19.00 hours.
