Founders of Western Civilization: Islam’s Golden Age


With Molly Cate

Explore the Golden Age of Islam, 750-1250 CE. Muslim scholars preserved and translated many works of ancient philosophy, science and art. Muslim traders acquired dozens of plant species we take for granted today. These scholars and traders were catalysts for the European Renaissance and Western Civilization. Islam is misrepresented in the West as a backward, violent religion. We will examine those misperceptions.
