Abstract

This session analyses the urban transformations of Córdoba (Spain) from Roman to Andalusi times based on archaeological and epigraphic research. In addressing the processes of topographical and social evolution, particular attention will be paid to how the population adapted to different lifestyles through identifying changes, ruptures, (dis)continuities, integrations and refusals. Our focus on three specific moments, Romanisation (from Augustan times until the 4th century); Christianisation (5th to 8th centuries); and Islamisation (8th to 10th centuries) will prompt the discussion about the possible role of Córdoba as a historic paradigm of transculturality and as a connection knot between the eastern and the western Mediterranean.
