Des shaykhs arméniens au pied du Mont Qasioun (XIIIe-XIVe siècle).

Abstract : ‘Abd Allâh al-Armanî came from Minor Asia. He came to Damascus to convert to Islam. He met the shaykh al-Dhahabî who converted him. He founded, with the help of the ayyubid prince of Damascus al-Mu‘azzam, a zâwiya at the foot of mount Qasiun. His sons and grandsons continued to be the masters. We will study, in this lecture, the different modalities of integration of an Armenian family to the medieval damascene society. And we will see how, in only two generations, the family of ‘Abd Allâh al-Armanî settled into society. We will focus our lecture on the identity of these men and question the Armenian identity: what still remains of “armenity” in a convert to Islam.
