Listen to our podcast of Dr Anna McSweeney’s talk on the Alhambra Cupola, one of the jewels of the Museum fur Islamische Kunst in Berlin. The particular focus of her talk will be the poetry, which forms an integral part of this fourteenth-century wooden ceiling that once was part of the Alhambra palace in Granada, Spain.
