Le règne du calife Ḥasan bar ʿAlī d'après une source syriaque

Abstract : In his Historia Monastica, the Syriac chronicler Thomas of Marga states that the East-Syrian catholicos Georges I (r. 661-681) was in office during the twenty-two years of al-Hasan b. 'Ali's reign, whereas Muslim sources consider that al-Hasan abdicated shortly after his father's death. Is Thomas of Marga just mistaken? In this short paper, I argue that his chronicle could reflect some early Shiʻi vision of the history of the caliphate.
