Le cadi et le sauf-conduit (amān) : les enjeux juridiques de la diplomatie dans l'Orient abbasside

Abstract : The employment of jurists or qāḍī-s for diplomatic missions, in the first centuries of Islam, is still little understood. The case of the qāḍī Ibrāhīm b. al-Jarrāḥ, who took a part in the surrender of the Egyptian governor ʿUbayd Allāh b. al-Sarī b. al-Ḥakam in 211/826, sheds light on the diplomatic use of qāḍī-s. With their special knowledge of legal books and formulas, qāḍī-s were increasingly seen by rulers as important experts who could use law to constrain the power of political rivals.
