Arabic administration in Norman Sicily : the royal dīwān by Jeremy Johns( )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jeremy Johns' book represents the first comprehensive account, in any language, of the Arabic administration of Norman Sicily. It argues that the Arabic bureau, established by Roger II and his successors, was closely modelled upon that of the Fatimid caliphs of Egypt, and was designed less as an efficient organ of administration, than as a medium for the projection of the royal image." "In the traditional literature, it has been assumed that the Norman rulers simply inherited the Arabic administration of the Kalbid emirs of the island. In fact, on the completion of the Norman conquest in 1092, Greek administrators were employed to adapt Arabic records and these formed the basis of the post-conquest distribution of the land and its population. With the passing of the first generation of administrators, however, new Arabic records ceased to be issued and Arabic disappeared as a language of central administration for the following twenty years. It was only after the coronation of Roger II in 1130; that a new and highly professional Arabic bureau - the royal diwan - began to issue a series of Arabic and bilingual (Arabic-Greek and Arabic-Latin) documents." "A close analysis of these, and of the diwan that produced them reveals that the main inspiration for the renaissance of the royal diwan came from the contemporary Islamic Mediterranean and, in particular, from Fatimid Egypt. An examination of the competence and reach of the Norman diwan suggests that its primary function was not administrative efficiency, but the projection of the Arabic facet of the Norman monarchy."--Jacket

Making lustre pottery with Alan Caiger-Smith by Alan Caiger-Smith( Visual )

Caiger-Smith's special interest has been the development of lustre pigments and opacification of glazes ; he has reinvented the art of lustre painting which he has developed into a style truly his own. This video features a pigment which he himself adapted from a 14th century Iranian recipe. Each section is approximately 30 minutes, making it an accessible study video. It also contains on-screen "glossary" entries, enabling students to note technical terms
