Représenter la province auprès du pouvoir impérial. Les délégations (wufūd) égyptiennes aux trois premiers siècles de l'Islam

Abstract : The practice of sending delegations (wafd-s) to the ruler has generally been interpreted as typical of the time of the Prophet and the first caliphs, particularly Muʿāwiya. Drawing on the example of Egyptian delegations to the imperial government in the first three centuries of Islam, this article argues that this phenomenon persisted well beyond the Sufyānid period, and that their composition reflected the evolution of socio-political dominations in Fusṭāṭ. Often overseen by the governor, and composed of civilian as well as military elites, these delegations represented the population of the provincial capital and maintained a direct link between them and the caliph.
