UNE ETHNOGRAPHIE SUCCINCTE DE « L'ENTRE-DEUX KURDE » AU MOYEN ÂGE

Abstract : Like the knowledge that historians have of all peoples on the fringes (Beduin, Turk, Berber) of the Islamic world, what is known about the Kurds during the medieval period suffers from a monolithic vision that sees far-off places as being “all the same”: tribalism, nomadism, castes... The economic and social organization of the land of the Kurds from the 9th to the 15th century is described. A paradigm of the “in-between” prevails geographically, socially, economically and politically. It has given rise to a still existing frontier culture specific to the Kurdish people. By asserting their sovereignty and differences, the tribes and emirs during the Middle Ages helped create a distinct Kurdish space.
