Chapter Summary

This chapter studies the collection of Arabic documents preserved in the municipal archive of Granada. The analysis of these documents enquires into different research areas, such as the origin of the 'corpus', the affinity between the documents in every collection, their historical background, the territorial areas and specific toponymy, the economy and monetary systems, as well as the use of translations from Arabic into Romance. The combination of the results of these partial studies can certainly help one to understand better the economy and society of the last part of the Naṣrid kingdom. Historical research on al-Andalus has made use of information gathered from three different kinds of sources: textual, material and documentary. The meticulous utilization of these sources of information, together with a well verified systematic analysis, can bring one closer to the historical reality of the time.

Keywords: al-Andalus; Arabic documents; Granada; municipal archives; Naṣrid kingdom
