Manières de boire et sociabilité du vin en Andalus

Abstract : Despite the prohibition on alcoholic beverages in Islam, the production and consumption of wine kept going on in the Arab-Muslim world, especially in the Iberian Peninsula. The documentation, more or less abundant according to the social groups it deals with, enable us to distinguish popular practices, which generally are set in taverns, country outings and various celebrations or festivities, and societal practices, including those that characterize the mağlis al-uns or sociability salon of the prince, like the one that was held by the King of Toledo Yaḥyā 1st Ibn Ḏī l-Nūn in 1063. But whatever the social environment, there are constants which make it possible to define Arab-Andalusian œnophilia and to include it as part of a broader tradition dating back to Antiquity and perpetuating itself to the present time through continuities and breaks.
