Description


This volume contains 24 papers, presented at the sixth, seventh and eighth Colloquium on the History of Egypt and Syria in the Fatimid, Ayyubid and Mamluk Eras, organized at the University of Leuven in May 1997, 1998 and 1999. The main purpose of these annual colloquia is to bring together an international body of scholars from different fields of research, around the central theme of Syro-Egypt's high and late medieval history. Resulting now in a third volume of this kind (volume I: OLA 73 - volume II: OLA 83), these proceedings again cover areas of research in the fields of medieval sociology, economy, archaeology, codicology, theology and administrative and political history, ranging from the 10th to the late 15th century AD. The individual contributions deal with a great number of topics, including Syro-Egyptian society and architecture, the Crusades, aspects of civil and military administration and organisation, role and value of pious endowments, and the intricacies of Syro-Egyptian politics.
