(p.1) Introduction
Coptic Identity and Ayyubid Politics in Egypt

Kurt J. Werthmuller

American University in Cairo Press

In the early thirteenth century, Greater Cairo had an expanse spread into a metropolitan; yet even so, some of its urban centers compete for prominence. Al-Qahira, Cairo's namesake, had been gradually giving way to the installation of Saladin's own Ayyubid system in the 1770s. This landscape, which was finished as a dynamic and expensive one, is the beginning of the story of this book. This book also deals with the different believers such as the Muslims, Christians, and Jews who were involved in the dynamics of the Coptic-Ayyubid model. Moreover, this book is not just about the Coptic-Ayyubid model, its complexities, and the boundaries of the medieval Coptic community; the lessons that need to be cleared about non-Muslim communities are included in parallel context here.

Keywords:   thirteenth century, Greater Cairo, metropolitan, urban, Al-Qahira, Saladin, Coptic-Ayyubid
