The studies in this collection comprise a series of explorations into the revolutionary character of the Almohad movement in medieval North Africa and Spain and how it was expressed, including through visual and auditory means. These articles examine what put in motion such a revolution, how it developed and changed, and the influences it had both in the Islamic and non-Islamic worlds. Eight of the studies have been translated into English, from Spanish and French, specially for publication here.
