ID : 195   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic The region Europeans call “the Middle East” has been the most civilized region of the Western world for 10,000 of Western Civilization’s 11,000 years. The torch of our civilization has been carried by many different Middle Eastern societies over those millennia. One of its peak periods was the early centuries of Arab Islam. We will follow the arc of the Arab Islamic story through its greatest cities—Mecca (focusing on the Haj, pilgrimage), Damascus (Umayyad), Baghdad (Abbasid), Cairo (Fatimid), and ending with the decline of Arab civilization after the Crusades--interweaving history, faith, governance, art, traditions, and the food, music, and lives of the people.
