This study uncovers the close relations the Georgian mamluks of Egypt maintained with their homeland in the late eighteenth century. On the basis of a wide range of archival and published sources, including a series of four unique letters from Ibrahim Bey al-Kabir and important members of his household, the authors conclude that these Georgian mamluks retained their native language, were aware of the politics of the Caucasus region, received frequent visits from their parents or other relatives, and sent gifts to family members or gave money to build useful structures (a defensive tower, or even a church) in their native villages.

Cette étude dévoile les étroites relations que les Mamelouks géorgiens en Egypte entretenaient avec leur pays natal à la fin du 18e siècle. Se fondant sur des sources variées d'archives et de documents publiés, dont une série de quatre lettres exceptionnelles d'Ibrahim Bey al-Kabir et d'importants membres de sa maison, les auteurs établissent que les Mamelouks géorgiens avaient conservé leur langue maternelle et étaient au courant de la politique dans la région du Caucase. Ils révèlent que leurs parents et d'autres membres de la famille leur rendaient souvent visite et qu'ils envoyaient des cadeaux à leurs familles ou des sommes d'argent pour édifier des bâtiments d'utilité publique (une tour de défense voire une église) dans leurs villages natals.
