Note Originally produced as motion picture in 2010
Summary Explores the legacy of the two medieval philosophers from Cordoba, Spain: Averroes the Muslim and Moses Maimonides the Jew. The film aims to define their contemporary importance for interfaith relations, and especially for Muslims, Jews, and Christians struggling against religious extremism. The film explores questions such as: will there be an inevitable "clash of civilizations" between the West and the Islamic world, are Jews and Muslims eternal enemies incapable of peaceful coexistence, and finally, does religious faith lead inevitably to xenophobia and violence?
