Jewish history in Spain began in the Roman period, reached its “golden age” under the Umayyad Caliphs in Andalusia and continued until the expulsion of 1492.

In this lecture series we will explore the pre-Islamic and early Islamic context for the flowering of Jewish culture in Spain, as well as give an introduction to the great sweep of Spanish Jewish history under both Islam and Christianity.

With Dr. Fran Malino, Sophia Moses Robison, professor of Jewish studies and history at Wellesley College.
