Andalusian Literature and Two-Way Influence

This lecture highlights the Arab civilization in Andalusia, innovations of its people in the literary field in particular, and the reality of the two-way influence associated with it.

The Andalusian era is one of the greatest eras of Arab and Islamic civilization, as it witnessed renaissance in sciences, cultural expansion, and artistic and literary creativity that continued to the eighth century AH.

It is true that this civilization was born in a pure Andalusian environment and was affected by it, yet it was not limited to the East. Rather, it developed highly to spread its influence outside its borders as a great creative nation, and became a beacon of thought and culture worldwide. Its impact can even be traced to contemporary western civilization.
