Today’s Briefing: Quick Links

oranges john mcphee excerpt islam“In the sixth and seventh centuries, the forces of Islam conquered a wide corridor across the world from India to Spain, and orange, tangerine and lemon trees today mark the track of the Muslim armies. After Moorish capitals had been established in Andalusia, desert artisans and architects, delirious in the presence of water, filled and surrounded their buildings with pools, cascades, and fountains, planting a small grove of oranges in the Great Mosque of Cordova and oranges and lemons in the interior courts of the Alhambra in Granada.”

–John McPhee in “Oranges” (1966)
