From Publishers Weekly:

Medieval Spain's intermingling of Christian, Muslim and Jewish cultures can be traced in this stunningly illustrated catalogue of an exhibition that is to open in 1995 at New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Visigoths, Germanic invaders who supplanted the Romans as overlords of Spain by the sixth century, fused Byzantine and Germanic influences in their churches. The cultural flowering of Islamic Spain, beginning with the conquest in 711 and lasting three centuries, was cross-fertilized by the participation of Jews and Mozarabs (Christians living under Spanish Muslim rule). The Christian kingdoms of northern Iberia nurtured the Romanesque style linking Spain to the orbit of Western Europe. These developments are traced here in hundreds of marvelous reproductions of illuminated manuscripts, sculpture, religious statuary, frescoes, jewelry, textiles and everyday objects. Dodds, a professor of art and architecture at Manhattan's City College, leads an international team of scholars in illuminating this feast.

From Library Journal:

Examining a colorful slice of Spain's rich heritage, this collection of articles focuses on the sixth to 13th centuries A.D. During this period, Spain fell alternatively under Christian and Islamic rule; the nation's early art reflects influences of both. Following chronological development, each article carefully examines the art in historical context, with a catalog of examples following the text. The black-and-white illustrations are clear, the maps helpful, and the color photos stunning. Among the authors are many recognized authorities on art history and Islamic art. This scholarly collection was published in conjunction with an exhibit of the same name that was to be have been held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art this winter but has been postponed indefinitely. Nonetheless, this well-executed book belongs in any academic collection on medieval art or art history.
