Chapter Summary

The establishment of a hierarchy amongst the five most copied and used original sources and, especially, the systematic interrelation between al-Maqrīzī’s Kitāb al-Sulūk and Ibn al-Furāt’s Tārīkh al-Duwal, has important repercussions in terms of calling into question certain statements about the last two authors, particularly the former. The question of readership is of great importance because it overlaps with features of historiographical production that were alluded to throughout this book. This book constitutes, it is hoped, yet another step in the overall effort to fully understand one of the richest historiographical traditions the Islamic world has ever known.

Keywords: al-Zāhir Barqūq; Early Mamluk Circassian Period
