Architectural Encounters: Islam and the West

Published in Noor Publishing
Abstract

The present book provides unique perspectives on Muslim-European cultural encounters, and architectural and artistic exchanges. The work is dedicated to the contribution of Muslim architecture to many aspects of European architecture, particularly during the medieval period. The analysis focuses on Muslim resources of European medieval architecture, tracing the origins of Muslim motifs -employed in the West (Europe)-, the routes by which such motifs were transferred, and provide the evidence where possible. The book should provide a new insight to historians, architects, academics, politicians and the general public in both the West and lands of Islam to understand and appreciate each other to achieve a well-deserved reconciliation and live in a lasting peace.
