Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts discussed in the book Jews, Christians and Muslims in Medieval and Early Modern Times. The book discusses the majority of Geniza texts date to the period of Egypt's rule by the Fatimid caliphs and Ayyubid sulṭāns (969-1250), a period during which the overwhelming majority of Jews worldwide, an estimated ninety percent, lived under Muslim rule. Fatimid Egypt was the center of the Jewish world, having eclipsed Abbasid Baghdad in this role. The Jews of Egypt were transformed, and under the new regime the Jewish community in Fusṭāṭ (Old Cairo) absorbed new arrivals and thrived.

Keywords: Ayyubid sulṭāns; Fatimid caliphs; Jewish community
