Toledo at night
Joshua Wood '08 beautifully captured the city of Toledo during a CentreTerm trip to Spain in January. The course focused on the fusion of cultures in Medieval Spain. In the 11th and 12th centuries, Toledo was an intellectual center where Jewish, Moorish and Christian scholars wrote and collaborated in relative harmony. While in Toledo, the class visited the School of Translators at the University of Castilla-La Mancha, a school that began in the Middle Ages and continues today, focusing on translating into Spanish modern literary works written in Arabic.
On their way out of Toledo, the bus driver took the students on a steep, curvy road where they could get a panoramic vista of the city, just as the sun went down.
