Cities of Light: The Rise and Fall of Islamic Spain (DVD). Offers a reconstruction of the cultural and intellectual accomplishments of the time, marked by religious tolerance, and by a gathering of books and ancient wisdom nourished and preserved until they could become the seeds of the Renaissance. This fascinating documentary is [about] how greed, fear and intolerance, along with puritanical judgments and absolutism destroyed a multicultural paradise of the Middle Ages. Over a thousand years ago, the sun-washed land of southern Spain was home to Jews, Christians, and Muslims, living together and flourishing. Their culture and beliefs intertwined, and the knowledge of the ancients was gathered and reborn. Here were the very seeds of the Renaissance. But this world too quickly vanished. Greed, fear, and intolerance swept it away. Puritanical judgments and absolutism snuffed out the light of learning. Within a few centuries, the fragile union of these people dissipated like smoke. The time of tolerance was lost, forever. Watch the documentary Cities of Light: The Rise and Fall of Islamic Spain to see how this civilization rose and, ultimately, fell. Featured: Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, Brian Catlos, Chris Lowney, Mustapha Kamal. Directors: Robert Gardner. Language: English. Rated: PG (Parental Guidance Suggested). Unity Productions Foundation. DVD Release Date: September 1, 2007. Run Time: 117 minutes
