African Presence in Early Europe puts in perspective the history of
the role of the African in world culture. The authors consider

advancement of European civilization. Articles detail the physical
and cultural presence of Africans in Europe. Topics covered
include: the debt owed to the Moors for the Renaissance; Leo
Africanus's Geographical History of Africa as a source for
Shakespeare's vision of Othello; the Africoid Grimaldis in Europe;
the black Moors; the origin of certain aspects of Greek philosophy;
African popes; and black madonnas. The book is divided into six
parts: The First Europeans; African Presence in the Ancient
Mediterranean Isles and Mainland Greece; Africans in the European
Religious Hierarchy; African Presence in Western Europe; African
Presence in Northern Europe; African Presence in Eastern Europe.
