Ornament of the World: How Muslims, Jews, and Christians Created a Culture of Tolerance in Medieval Spain

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading, 30 July 2013

If only more people realised the importance of the Golden Age between 700AD and the fourteenth century. I thank Maria Rosa Menocal for her explicit research. Anyone who seeks an answer to the 'blindness' of our age in relation to our Abrahamic Faiths should read and study the contents of this excellent book. I have already given several copies to my friends and will continue to do so!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jerusalem, 2 Jun 2011

If I am asked to specify an ambition it would be that people should understand that by making ill-formed judgements as a result of a lack of knowledge in particular subjects will result in serious damage to that subject. Simon Sebag Montefiore's 'Jerusalem' is essential reading. His excellent book provides an understanding of the importance of creating a dialogue between the three Abrahamic faiths. The lack of knowledge concerning these three great faiths is a tragedy. Montefiore makes a very substantial contribution to understanding this subject.

This Storage facility is excellent. However I am told that if I move the product say from one country to another on a frequent basis it could damage the mechanism.

This is an excellent little book. My wife has another copy which is falling to pieces so as a special treat I spent a couple of pounds on a very good second-hand copy. Thanks to Amazon. It is out of print !!
