Overview

God's Crucible: Islam and the Making of Europe, 570-1215 by David Levering Lewis

David Levering Lewis's masterful history begins with the fall of the Persian and Roman empires, followed by the rise of the Prophet Muhammad and the creation of Muslim Spain. Lewis's narrative, filled with accounts of some of the greatest battles in world history, reveals how cosmopolitan Muslim al-Andalus flourished - a beacon of cooperation and tolerance - while proto-Europe floundered in darkness.
