The Waning crescentStreaming Video - 2008 | Spanish
What did Europe, especially the multifaceted Iberian peninsula, look like as the forces of Islam yielded to the expanding kingdoms of Christendom? This program provides answers as it explores the politics, culture, and increasingly Gothic landscape of Spain during the late 13th and early 14th centuries. Recounting the military exploits of Alfonso X, the program also describes his more erudite venture-establishing the famous School of Translators at Toledo, which contributed immensely to European learning. The reigns of Sancho IV, Fernando IV, Alfonso XI, and Pedro I are included, culminating in the "treason of Montiel".
