Muslim Grandeur


The dark ages settle in Europe and the ancient world,  but out of the east comes a new force … Islam explodes out of Arabia and within a few decades a vast new Muslim empire dominates world civilization. It is to write a brilliant chapter in the history of knowledge and learning,  tolerance and understanding. While Europe sinks into the dark ages, from Iran and Iraq in the east to Andalusia in the west, with Egypt and the Levant at the core, the torch of art and science is held high.

This series of 25-minute episodes, each enriched with an abundance of visual material, is available in both English and Arabic. Dr. Serageldin takes us on a journey of exploration and discovery in the realm of science, from distant space to the frontiers of tomorrow.
