  10. Treasuring Yemen: Notes on Exchange and Collection in Rasūlid Material Culture.Ellen Kenney - 2021 - Der Islam: Journal of the History and Culture of the Middle East 98 (1):27-68.
    Often distinguished by their characteristic five-petalled rosette emblems, objects dedicated to the Rasūlid sultans of Yemen in Egypt or Syria have long been identified as a distinct corpus in histories of Islamic art. Whether treated singly or as a group, these objects have usually been positioned in the periphery of discussions about Mamlūk luxury arts or cited briefly as evidence of diplomatic relations between the Mamlūk and Rasūlid leadership. Perhaps reflecting a general marginalization of South Arabia in the historiographic traditions (...)

    Evolving Rasūlid Narratives of Opposition to Sultan Al-Manṣūr Nūr Al-Dīn ʿUmar (D. 647/1250) in Yemen.Daniel Mahoney - 2021 - Der Islam: Journal of the History and Culture of the Middle East 98 (1):153-174.
    The Rasūlid chronicles of the reign of al-Manṣūr Nūr al-Dīn ʿUmar b. ʿAlī b. Rasūl depict its first ruler as steadily consolidating the political foundation of the sultanate. Most of these reports clearly portray the dominance of the sultan in Yemen during this period. But a few reveal the limitations of his power in a more complex political landscape, such as an aborted military campaign against a local tribe, an insurrection by a Zaydi sharīf, and the sultan’s assassination by his (...)

    Relying on textual, ethnographic, and environmental scholarship on Yemen and the comparative insights of research into fisheries in the premodern Mediterranean world, the present study surveys the types of marine resources that appear across a wide range of literary and documentary sources pertaining to Yemen during the reign of the Rasūlids from the early 7th/13th to the mid-9th/15th century. Although Rasūlid-generated texts pay relatively scant attention to fishing, they clearly demonstrate the interest of the Rasūlid state in both the subsistence (...)

  15. Three Unpublished Scrolls Attesting to Pilgrimages to Mecca and Medina.Sergio Carro Martín - 2021 - Der Islam: Journal of the History and Culture of the Middle East 98 (1):221-245.
    This article presents the edition of three unpublished 16th-century scrolls preserved in the Palau Ribes Collection that contain diagrammatic representations of the holy places of Mecca and Medina. One of them certifies the fulfillment of the major and minor pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca on behalf of a little girl, in what appears to be a certificate reused by removing the names of the original parties. The other two documents extoll the city of Medina and the Prophet Muḥammad, (...)

    Eunuchs at the Service of Yemen’s Rasūlid Dynasty.Magdalena Moorthy Kloss - 2021 - Der Islam: Journal of the History and Culture of the Middle East 98 (1):6-26.
    The significant roles played by eunuchs in Rasūlid Yemen have thus far escaped scholarly scrutiny. A systematic study of the historiographic and biographical writings of ʿAlī b. al-Ḥasan al-Khazrajī, chronicler of the Rasūlid court at the turn of the 9th/15th century, reveals that eunuchs figured prominently both in the highest ranks of the dynasty’s political, administrative, and military hierarchy, as well as in the most intimate realms of royal households. The author, however, remains silent on the origins of these men (...)

    This article presents the edition of a late 3rd/9th- or early 4th/10th-century search warrant for stolen goods. The scribe reports that two black men were traveling on two donkeys, one of which was also loaded with a saddlebag of money, jewellery and clothes. Upon reaching the Upper Egyptian village of Saqāwa, the two black men were assaulted and murdered, and the goods and donkeys stolen. This document corroborates descriptions in historical works of frequent rebel attacks in various regions of Egypt (...)

  22. Reading Rasūlid Maps: An Early 14th-Century Geographical Resource.Daniel Martin Varisco - 2021 - Der Islam: Journal of the History and Culture of the Middle East 98 (1):100-152.
    While there is a tradition of Islamic world maps and geographic depictions of direction to the Kaʿba in Mecca, relatively few detailed maps of individual Islamic realms have been studied. In an early 14th-century tax ledger compiled for the Rasūlid sultan al-Malik al-Muʾayyad Dāwūd, there is a map of the fortresses, major towns, and ports of the areas controlled and taxed, as well as individual maps of Aden, Taʿizz, al-Janad, Dhamār, al-Shiḥr, and several wadis. Given the context of the text, (...)

    This paper edits and studies four Arabic legal documents, written on two papyri, now housed in the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University. The documents belong to a certain ʿAmmār b. Salama b. ʿAbd al-Wārith, a merchant from al-Bahnasā. Document 1 records a contract of sale of two inherited portions belonging to a Copt with double names, a Christian and a Muslim one. The contract touches on two significant socio-religious subjects: 1. name change after religious conversion, and (...)
