Cátedra Al-Andalus. Conference ‘Continuity in Andalusí art: from late-antiquity to the Alhambra’
Professor Belén Cuenca presents a journey from late-antiquity to the construction of the Alhambra, analyzing key buildings of different cults to understand what we call Islamic art in the Iberian Peninsula.
In an inclusive discourse, Andalusí art has many elements of its own that, together with others that start from other parts of the Mediterranean, make up a great cultural apparatus essential for the understanding of medieval Europe and the Renaissance, and which continues to this day.
