Moorish Remains In Spain by Albert F. Calvert

Moorish Remains In Spain by Albert F. Calvert

Architectural presentation of the legacy of Islam in Andulisia. Including details of the great mosque in Cordoba and also architectural gems from Seville. The book also includes a historical account of the Muslim presence in SpainTHE inception of my work on The Alhambra, to which this book is designed to be the companion and complementary volume, was due to the disappointing discovery that no such thing as an even moderately adequate souvenir of the Red Palace of Granada, “that glorious sanctuary of Spain,” was in existence. It was written at a time when I shared the very common delusion that the Alhambra was the only word in a vocabulary of relics which includes such Arabian superlatives as the Mos que at Cordova, the Gates and the Cristo de la Luz of Toledo, and the Alcaza r at Seville . I had then to learn that while the Alhambra has rightly been accepted as the last word on Moorish Art in Spain, it must not be regarded as the solitary monument of the splendour and beauty with which the Arabs stamped their virile and artistic personality upon Andalus.
