This is a 45 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Muslim Civilizations: The Golden Age of Islam. 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.
Knowledge was synthesized from works originating in ancient Mesopotamia, Ancient Rome, China, India, Persia, Ancient Egypt, North Africa, Ancient Greece and Byzantine civilizations. 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.
The Crusades had been long and costly and eventually impacted the fall of the Golden Age of Islam. The Mongols and Turks from Central Asia conquered most of the Eurasian land mass, including both China in the east and parts of the old Islamic empire and Persian Islamic Khwarezm, as well as Russia and Eastern Europe in the west, and subsequent invasions of the Levant.
The presentation covers the following:
First Universal Civilization
Arab Agricultural Revolution
Impact on Europe (2)
End of the Golden Age of Islam
End of the Presentation
