Overview

A celebration of the contribution Islam has made to the cultural and spiritual heritage of the world, this sumptuous reference gathers numerous examples of the masterpieces of art and architecture that one of the world's major religions has left on various continents. Paintings, jewelry, metalwork, and sculptures are examined along with architectural wonders such as Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock, the Alhambra in Spain, and the Taj Mahal in India. The book also provides a cursory introduction to the history of Islam's empires and dynasties, and leaves no doubt as to the significance of the religion.
