Le Livre Des Califes Qui S’En Remirent Au Jugement D’Un Cadi .
. ( Cahiers des Annales islamologiques, 30 ) 2011, 103pp. glossy printed wrappers,
¶ This short adab treatise by Abu- Hila-l al-?Askari- (d. c. 400/1010) marks an important turning point in the relationship between political power and the judiciary in Islam. Written in the Bu-yid period as a concise mirror for princes, the work sanctions a doctrinal evolution that is the outcome of long-standing tension between the judiciary and the highest levels of the state. Using a series of pseudo-historical narratives, Abu- Hila-l suggests that rulers should be prepared to submit to the adjudication of ordinary men. By presenting caliphs as being under the judicial authority of qa-d.i--s, the author contributes to the de-sacralisation of the caliphate and to the promotion of an independent judiciary. Mathieu Tillier, researcher at the Institut français du Proche-Orient (Ifpo), presents a critical edition of the text with an introduction and a translation into French. righ bottom of front wrapper creased, o/w fine new copy.
