Court cases from al-Ahkām al-kubrā, a fatwā collection compiled by the Andalusian qādī Ibn Sahl (d. 486/1093), form the basis for this inquiry into the judicial authority of the qādī al-jamā'a. The article, which deals with both institutional and legal aspects of the office, demonstrates that adherence to procedural law during court procedure and consideration of the jurisconsults' legal opinions were required to produce a judgment that was binding but potentially reversible. The possible influence of Mālikī fiqh on the range of qādī jurisdiction in Cordoba is tested on a sample of fifty cases that originated in the period between 456/1064 and 464/1072. These cases are noteworthy for their reliability as source material and because they were handled not only by the qādī al-jamā'a but also by other judicial magistrates.
