Islam, Christianity conflict topic of talk

Citizen Staff Writer



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 Pietãs: 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.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
