Les Banū Ḥinnā à Fusṭāṭ-Miṣr. Pouvoir et implantation urbaine d'une famille de notables à l'époque mamelouke

Abstract : The aim of this paper is to reconstruct the story of the Banū Ḥinnā, a family of Egyptian notables, native of Fusṭāṭ-Miṣr, using information from historical sources of the Mamluk period (1250-1517). Focusing on this Coptic family, converted to Islam between the 12th and the 13th centuries, we will bring to light the prosperity of administrators' dynasties of this period, related to their investment in the administration of the newly created Mamluk state. In a second part, we will deal with the spatial and social presence of the Banū Hinnā in Fusṭāṭ-Miṣr. For that purpose, we will examine their commitment in the city's affairs, the role of their patronage and investment in the urban space's shaping, and the traces left by the Banū Ḥinnā in the memory of their contemporaries.
