Dr. Adnan Husain, MSGP Director, appeared as a scholarly expert in the documentary "Ornament of the World" which aired on December 17 on PBS. This two-hour documentary focuses on the history of Medieval Spain and the cultural, political, and religious interactions among Muslims, Christians, and Jews over the course of over 800 years of their co-existence. 

As PBS describes, 

The Ornament of the World tells a story from the past that’s especially timely today: the story of a remarkable time in history when Muslims, Christians and Jews forged a common cultural identity that frequently transcended their religious differences. Retrace a nearly 800-year period in medieval Spain, from the early 8th through late 15th centuries, during which the three groups managed for the most part to sustain relationships that enabled them to coexist, collaborate and flourish.

The documentary can be viewed here.
