The resources on this page are a sampling of websites, lesson packages, language and culture sites available to teachers online. All of them are worth a look, and many of them are magnificent efforts to uncover and restore the legacy of cultural interaction that took place over more than seven centuries in al-Andalus, or Islamic Spain, and spread to the Iberian Peninsula and on to the Americas. While scholars such as Rosa Maria Menocal have noted how the cultural contributions from Islamic Spain had often been denied or buried, there have been many recent efforts to recover those deep connections and make them available to the public and to teachers and their students.

It suggests that while the Umayyads never set out to build an empire nor did they admit to being a secular imperial power, there is no denying that the caliphate had all the essential qualities of an empire. This chapter also considers the annexation of the Iberian Peninsula by the Umayyad Caliphate and the problem of defining subjecthood in the caliphate.

Al-Andalus. History of the Rise and Fall of Islamic Spain.
Arab civilization in the peninsula reached its zenith when the political power of the Arabs began to decline. Immediately following the Muslim conquest in the 8th century, there were no traces of a cultural level higher than that attained by the Mozarabs who lived among the Arab conquerors. All available evidence points to the fact that in this period popular works of medicine, agriculture, astrology, and geography were translated from Latin into Arabic. Many of these texts must have been derived from the Etymologies of Isidore of Sevilla and from other Christian writers. In the 9th century the situation changed abruptly: the Andalusians, who traveled east in order to comply with the injunction to conduct a pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in their lifetimes, took advantage of their stay in those regions to enhance their knowledge, which they then introduced into their native country.
The Arrival of the Moors. She complains to her father who is the governor of the far away outpost of Ceuta, across the straits from Gibraltar. The father, angered, seeks vengeance and invites the expansionist Muslim forces of North Africa to invade his country and punish the man who has offended him. Desire, anger, revenge…a potent combination. It is a compelling story as the explanation for the invasion of the Moors, but it is no more than that, a story embroidered by later generations to explain why Christian Hispania modern Spain and Portugal was lost to the Muslims.
