Chapter Summary

The significance for Mamlūk-Georgian relations of the Monastery of the Holy Cross, located outside the Old City of Jerusalem to the west, has been demonstrated elsewhere. It is particularly evident from the fact that, after its confiscation by the Mamlūk Sultan Baybars in 666/1268, the monastery was returned to the Georgians at the beginning of the fourteenth century when relations between the two sides were re-established. A whole series of documents were issued by the Mamlūk state chancery on behalf of Sultan An-Nāṣir Muḥammad (d. 741/1341) on this occasion, demonstrating the efforts made to maintain good relations with the Georgians. As the document of Baybars, an-Nāṣir Ḥasan’s document is not an official decree but a personally addressed missive. It is 27 lines long and the right-hand margin is 4 cm to 4.5 cm on average, i.e., about a third of its width.
