Like Connections to the Philippine-American War, this assessment gauges students' knowledge of the past. Students with a strong understanding of the past will explain that the fact this Quran was made in Seville points to the Islamic presence in the city in 1226. As an Islamic city in Iberia, it was the target of the Reconquista, which was raging at the time this Quran was completed. A strong response to the second question might explain that in the 8th century the Umayyad Caliphate expanded to Seville and beyond, establishing Islam as the dominant religion in Seville for centuries to come.
