Nietzsche on medieval Islamic Spain

“The wonderful culture of the Moors in Spain, which was fundamentally nearer to us and appealed more to our senses and tastes than that of Rome and Greece, was trampled down…. a civilization beside which even that of our nineteenth century seems very poor and very senile.’”

~ Friedrich Nietzsche, The Antichrist (1888)
