This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Muslim Civilizations: The End of Islam's Golden Age. All the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
The Islamic Golden Age is traditionally dated from the mid-7th century to the mid-13th century at which Muslim rulers established one of the largest empires in history. During this period, artists, engineers, scholars, poets, philosophers, geographers and traders in the Islamic world contributed to agriculture, the arts, economics, industry, law, literature, navigation, philosophy, sciences, sociology, and technology, both by preserving earlier traditions and by adding inventions and innovations of their own.
Two factors contributed to the eventual Fall of the Islamic Golden Age: The Crusades, in the 11th century and the Mongol Invasion, in the 13th century. Eventually, the Mongols and Turks that settled in parts of Persia, Central Asia, Russia and Anatolia converted to Islam, and as a result, the Ilkhanate, Golden Horde and Chagatai Khanates became Islamic states.
In many instances, Mongols assimilated into various Muslim Iranian or Turkic peoples. One of the greatest Muslim astronomers of the 15th century, Ulugh Beg, was a grandson of Timur. By the time the Ottoman Empire rose from the ashes, the Golden Age is considered to have come to an end.
