HUM 115 - The Archaeology and History of Early Islam
Islam emerged out of the desert regions of Arabia as a new religious movement. Although originally for Arabs only, it quickly spread into other regions and cultures and today has become the world's most widespread religion. The result of its geographical spread is a fascinating blend of Near Eastern, African, European and Asian influences, each with its own distinctive regional styles and expressions. In this course we will examine the ideals behind and artistic embellishments of monuments and artefacts in the Muslim world (Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, & Spain) in early Islam(ca. the 6th century AD to AD 1100, the early Crusades).
