Deux catégories de prisons coexistaient à l'époque abbasside : celles des cadis et celles d'institutions politico-militaires. Mais cette distinction était largement théorique. L'étude de l'administration carcérale, de ses rapports aux autorités urbaines et de sa géographie montre que les prisons relevaient avant tout des gouverneurs et de la šurta : par leur empreinte sur le paysage urbain, les principales prisons iraqiennes manifestaient la puissance coercitive de la dynastie. Two kinds of prisons coexisted under the ‘Abbāsids: the qādī's prisons and those of some military as well as political institutions. But the distinction was largely theoretical. The study of their administration, of their relations with the urban authorities and of their location shows that prisons depended above all on governors and šurta: by impressing their stamp on the urban landscape, the main Iraqi prisons expressed the coercive power of the dynasty.
