Medieval Fair Lecture "The Tumultuous Seventh Century: The Arab-Islamic Conquests and the Reshaping of the World"

February 28th 2014 - 6:30pm

"The Tumultuous Seventh Century: The Arab-Islamic Conquests and the Reshaping of the World" Gershon Lewental, Schusterman Visiting Professor of Israel Studies, Schusterman/Josey Program in Judaic & Israel Studies, OU presents: In the fourth decade of the seventh century, Muslim warriors burst out of Arabia and onto the world stage, bringing with them the revolutionary message of the new creed of Islam. Within the short span of a few decades, these Arab tribesmen succeeded in vanquishing the two super-powers of the age and in establishing their rule over a massive stretch of land from Spain and North Africa in the west to India in the east. The events of this turbulent century and the eventual emergence of Islamic civilization changed the face of the Middle East and the course of world history.
