Mubārak al-Qābūnī al-Ḥabashī: part 3

Black History Month continues with my third instalment on Mubārak al-Qābūnī al-Ḥabashī. This time, the biography following below comes from Ibn Ayyūb. Ibn Ayyūb, Sharaf al-Dīn Mūsā. Kitāb al-rawḍ al-ʿāṭir fīmā tayassiru min akhbār ahl al-qarn al-sābiʿ ilā khitām al-qarn al-ʿāshir. Staatsbibliothek Berlin, MS Wetzstein II 289 (you can read it here). Last week, we looked at how his successor Ibn al-ʿImād inserted a new episode which, to my understanding, plays heavily on Mubārak’s African origin. Ibn Ayyūb’s biography does not feature it. Yet, it … Continue reading Mubārak al-Qābūnī al-Ḥabashī: part 3

This involves an interrogation of the source of this ‘sentiment du fer’ (Pascal Briost) which, if spread at the end of …

Anna Akasoy (Graduate Center, CUNY)

Playing with Birds of Prey at Medieval Muslim Courts The book of Adham and Ghitrif, one of the oldest preserved treatises on falconry in Arabic, begins with a chapter on ‘the first who played with birds of prey’. The anonymous author of Umayyad times offers a compilation of anecdotes about Persian, Byzantine, Arab and Visigothic rulers who discovered independently the practice of hunting with different species of birds of prey. Their interactions with the birds as well as with each other reflect the multiple …

Pierre-Henry Bas (université Paris III)

The playful conventions in fencing competitions at the end of the Middle Ages and early Modern Era The Germanic fight books (Fechtbücher) are medieval and Renaissance works about fencing, wrestling and jousting. It is a technical literature, specialized, a Fachliteratur, exposing the theoretical way to handle different types of swords, shields or staff weapons, in different contexts: the judicial duel, street fighting or agonistic games. The study of this type of literature is complex, the authoritative project being very obscure. That can be a …
