Chapter Summary

This chapter contains bibliography, editions and inventory numbers of the Genizah documents. It cited the Genizah documents according to the database of Princeton Genizah Project. The Quṣayr Documents, one of the few Arabic archives unearthed in situ, shed new light on a lonely 13th-century outpost on the Red Sea shore where Egyptian donkey caravans met with ships coming from the Ḥidjāz and South Arabia. This book is the publication of another twenty-five business letters and process slips from al-Quṣayr al-Qadīm. These unspectacular but elucidative documents follow clear rules in phraseology and in layout, as is shown by a multitude of close parallels with Arabic papyri and papers and with Judeo-Arabic Genizah documents. The book includes a short introduction on how online search strategies can be used in dealing with Arabic mass sources. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: al-Quṣayr al-Qadīm; Arabic papyri; Geniza documents; Princeton Geniza Project database
