Abstract

This book traces the origins, history, and memory of the Jalayirid dynasty, a family that succeeded the Mongol Ilkhans in Iran and Iraq in the 14th and early 15th centuries. The story of how the Jalayirids came to power is illustrative of the political dynamics that shaped much of the Mongol and post-Mongol period in the Middle East. The Jalayirid sultans sought to preserve the social and political order of the Ilkhanate, while claiming that they were the rightful heirs to the rulership of that order. Central to the Jalayirids' claims to the legacy of the Ilkhanate was their attempt to control the Ilkhanid heartland of Azarbayjan and its major city, Tabriz. Control of Azarbayjan meant control of a network of long-distance trade between China and the Latin West, which continued to be a source of economic prosperity through the 8th/14th century. Azarbayjan also represented the center of Ilkhanid court life, whether in the migration of the mobile court-camp of the ruler, or in the complexes of palatial, religious and civic buildings constructed around the city of Tabriz by members of the Ilkhanid royal family, as well as by members of the military and administrative elite. This title was made Open Access by libraries from around the world through Knowledge Unlatched.

Abstract

The notion of Central Asia emerged at a late stage, replacing that of “Tartary”, often associated with the Mongol Terror, in 1825 only. Two twentieth-century archaeological currents profoundly contributed to the revival of studies on this region: the French school led by the Délégation archéologique française en Afghanistan, and the Soviet school characterized by large multidisciplinary expeditions. The rediscovery of the region’s two main languages, Sogdian and Bactrian, has significantly fu...

Abstract

Depuis la grande expédition d’Égypte qui marqua les esprits, seuls des voyageurs aussi célèbres que Maxime Du Camp et Gustave Flaubert sont restés dans les mémoires, alors que d’autres sont complètement oubliés ou connus des seuls spécialistes. Pourtant, leurs travaux restent des sources irremplaçables sur une ville en grande partie disparue. En effet, tout au long du XIXe siècle, beaucoup de monuments périrent faute d’entretien et à partir des années 1870, le khédive Ismaïl entreprit des travaux d’embellissement pour donner à la capitale de l’Égypte un aspect européen, aux prix d’importantes démolitions. Tous ces voyageurs, architectes, peintres, « antiquaires » furent subjugués par l’architecture médiévale du Caire et par le décor géométrique de ses bâtiments civils et religieux. Ils tentèrent à travers leurs dessins, photographies et relevés de faire connaître ces richesses artistiques que certains prévoyaient de publier dans des recueils, dont quelques-uns virent le jour. Ce livre a pour vocation de sortir de l’ombre ces passionnés qui offrent encore aujourd’hui des témoignages uniques assortis souvent de descriptions de dessins, de photographies ou d’écrits théoriques en règle générale peu accessibles. Un ensemble de spécialistes met ici en valeur ces documents tombés dans l’oubli et présente des synthèses de leurs œuvres et de leurs apports à la connaissance du Caire médiéval. La présente version numérique est revue et corrigée par rapport à la version publiée en 2013 aux éditions Picard.
