Le Proche-Orient de Justinien aux Abbassides : Peuplement et dynamiques spatiales

Abstract : This work contains twenty-one papers by researchers working on the ground in the Middle East and Egypt studying specific cases of demographic and social change driven by the passage of Byzantine rule in the new Arab dynasties of Umayyad and Abbasid. The general conditions of agriculture in this vast area are discussed, supplemented by more detailed analysis on the development of regions such as Osrhoene, the city and territory of Resafa, Syria, Damascus and its hinterland, the evolution of urban Palestine east of the Jordan river, the development of thriving towns and ancient forts of the Limes, and the reoccupation of ancient sites (the Nabataean temple of Khirbet ed-Darih) by Christian and Muslim villages.
