Conflict with Islam and Christianity in 15th century topic of lecture

The conflict between Islam and Christianity in the 15th century is the topic of the next lecture in the “Celebrating the Retablo Lecture Series” at the University of Arizona Museum of Art.

Cynthia Robinson, an associate professor of Medieval and Islamic Art History at Cornell University, will address the topic at 5 p.m. Friday in the UAMA Retablo Gallery.

Robinson’s topic, “Pomegranates and Pietàs: Conflict and Contact between Islam and Christianity in the Age of the Retablo de Ciudad Rodrigo,” is the latest in a series of lectures celebrating the 49-panel, floor-to-ceiling altarpiece that once adorned a cathedral in Ciudad Rodrigo, in west-central Spain.

UAMA, at Park Avenue and Speedway Boulevard, is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
