Le « territoire tribal des Kurdes » et l'aire iraqienne (X e-XIII e siècles) : esquisse des recompositions spatiales

Abstract : The "tribal territory of the Kurds" and the Iraqi area (X e-XIII e c.) Since the very early stages of Arabic historiography in the ninth century, mention has been made of the Kurds by several authors. These Iranian populations, described as being fierce and rough, lived in the mountainous regions of the Middle East from Fârs to the Taurus. This area crossed by the Kurdish tribes is an always shifting ideal, tribal and political space. During the twelth century, Arabic medieval litterary sources seem to describe a reduction of what we call the "tribal territory of the Kurds". This zone seems to slide westward and to overlap with the "Iraqi space". This phenomena follows a political reshuffling born out of Turkmen infiltrations and the counter-crusades led by the Zankid rulers.
