Ourense to Santiago (2019), CF: (2014, 2004, 2002, 2001). On to Fisterra, (2002, 4, 14).
Tonight, December 17, PBS is airing a new show: “Ornaments of the World”.

The program covers the 800 year history of medieval Spain; highligting the manner in which Muslims, Jews, and Christians coexisted or did not so do.

Check PBS airdates for next viewing opportunity.

Buen camino

I missed the first half hour, but it's showing again in a couple of day, so I have it set to record. Thanks.

Thank you NYC. I used my Roku streaming device and PBS to watch the documentary this morning. At the end they said that the book it was based on and a DVD of the show was available at shoppbs.org and that it could be downloaded from itunes. It's two hours folks.

In case you want to do searches for it online the name is actually "The Ornament of the World", from an old description of Cordoba.

I just finished watching the PBS Video. Wonderful... One of the reasons I have been to Spain for the last seven summers from the US is to be walking through and immersed in thousands of years of recorded human history. Something that is not possible in my home country. My plans are to keep going back until I am physically unable.

A lot of the national PBS programming can be watched on the pbs.org website for a few weeks after it has played on their regular stations. They usually post it a day or two after it’s been played the first time. Then after a few weeks they put a pay wall in front of it. The PBS app also does this. You just kind of have to poke around… What I don’t know is if it works overseas or only in the US.?

The author of that book, who is extensively interviewed in the film, was a colleague of a friend of mine. Sadly, she died in 2012. https://news.yale.edu/2012/10/15/memoriam-mar-rosa-menocal

It is a great show, beautiful photography, too. So glad you posted about it @nycwalking. The website says it will be on the web until January 14, so for all you low tech forum members in the US, that’s the easiest option.

If you have a VPN, you may be able to change your network location fo USA and stream online.
Thank you, but I don 't have a VPN.
The coexistance of the three groups was not always so good in Al Andalus.
As far as I know, after the arrival of the Almoravides and Almohades from Morocco to restablish the islamic fundamentalism, both Christians and Jews were affected.

Thanks for the link to that article, Laurie - very interesting to learn a little bit about her life and work. Her 2009 book, “The Arts of Intimacy: Christians, Jews and Muslims in the Making of Castilian Culture,” is now on my reading list. Whenever we travel in Spain, something from her “Ornament of the World” book pops into my mind to inform my understanding of the places we are visiting. I wish I could have met her.

Last day to watch this for free on PBS.org in the United States. It says it expires January 14, 2020, so maybe tomorrow also. I had forgotten about it over the busy holidays, but I’m going watch it tonight! (see link in previous post).

I did finally manage to watch this. Very interesting. I knew a little bit about the Moorish history of Spain, But this offered me much more detail. In a better world, it would be a nice model for a renewal of religious cooperation between the west and islam. The “ornament“, referred to is the city of Cordova, as named by a ninth century German Christian nun!
