Les refortifications ayyoubides et mameloukes en Syrie du Nord (fin du XIIe siècle - début du XIVe siècle)

Abstract : The Crusader fortresses located along the Syrian coast are conquered progressively, from the end of the 12th century to the beginning of the 14th century by the Ayyubids and the first Mamluks. These castles are immediately reoccupied and refortified to face the threats of Crusader counteroffensives. During this period, two Islamic refortification waves emerge: the Ayyubid refortification following Saladin's military campaign in 1188 around Lattakia and the Mamluk refortifications ordered by sultans Baybars and Qalawun in the last third of the 13th century in the surroundings of Crac des Chevaliers. These two phases of reconquest and refortification play, with the architectural features developed there, an essential role in the development and in the culmination of an Islamic military architecture of the Crusades.
