Convivencia


Convivencia

Convivencia is a Spanish word that means living together. It is used to refer to the time in medieval Al-Andalus when the three Abrahamic monotheisms lived together peacefully and created the most sophisticated civilization in Europe at the time and paved the way for the Renaissance. The word is used again today as an expression of hope for what is possible.
