Hispania ablazeStreaming Video - 2008 | Spanish
In the eighth century, the fertile and forested Iberian peninsula-also known as Hispania or Al-Andalus-was transformed into a battlefield. This episode illustrates Spain's descent into transcontinental and interreligious warfare with the coming of the Umayyad invaders and the prolonged infighting that erupted among both Christian and Arab forces. Exploring the complex heritage manifested in the Mozarabic architecture of Cordoba, Seville, and Badajoz, the films also sheds light on the Visigothic presence in Tingitana, or Tangier, as well as the treachery of the sons of Wittiza.
