  • Similarities Between Aeneas And Tariq Ibn Ziyad

    Downtrodden on the Mediterranean coastline, the hero rises before his cohort as they face overwhelming obstacles and rallies them onward to fortune and glory. This striking image coincidentally illustrates the origin of two disparate domains: Aeneas begetting the Roman people and Tariq ibn Zayid seizing the Iberian Peninsula for the Islamic Caliphate. The scenes of these heroes’ rousing speeches echo each other both literally and literarily as they open the classic tale of the birth of their cultures. The fictional Aeneas of Virgil’s epic poem as well as Tariq ibn Ziyad, who would be permanently veiled by legend and hyperbole, would become glorified by their supposed descendants them long after the facts had faded from the historical record. Their imposing images were intended to embellish the empires that succeeded them and have since…

    In the pre-colonial Morocco, there was a distinctive Berber culture that was detached from the wider trends of the Islamic and Arabic culture as well as urban life according to colonial scholars and anthropologists (Crawford, p.21).

    didn’t like the Protestant church is back home. When I was in England I heard about a group of people who called themselves the Puritans.
