Medieval Spain fostered an enlightened culture in which three great Abrahamic traditions -- Judaism, Christianity, and Islam -- co-existed, interacted, and flourished.

In many ways, this period offers the closest model to the global world today, in the way that Christians, Muslims, Jews, and others intermixed, competed, and tried to cooperate. These three major faiths inextricably share common roots, beliefs, stories, and history.
