For almost eight centuries the Arabs dominated much of the territory of the Iberian Peninsula (711-1492 C.E.). They called that region al-Andalus and, although its territorial extension varied over the years, Arabic was its predominant language and Islam its majoritarian religion. Until the beginning of the 17th century, numerous Muslims or people of Muslim origin continued to reside in Spain. Likewise, material and textual legacy still remain and its knowledge is essential to writing the history of al-Andalus today.
