View all HIS classes

This course uses religious conflicts in Spain from 1095-1492 to help understand the many dimensions of religious conflict today and also to explore Christian responses to military conflict. The historical case study is the Crusades and Holy Wars in Spain 1095-1492, studied in their social, political, and religious contexts. Topics include the Crusades, pogroms against Jews, suppression of heresy, the use of torture, the development of the western ideas of the Just War and Pacifism, Christian missions to Muslims, Christian-Muslim theological debates, the development of the Islamic idea of Jihad, the Reconquest in Spain, and the corollary issues that flow from all of these as they apply to contemporary religious and military conflicts.
