Institute of Ismaili studies publishes an Account of Imam-Caliph al-Mu‘izz’s Reign
The latest IIS publication, Towards a Shi‘i Mediterranean Empire: Fatimid Egypt and the Founding of Cairo, explores the reign of the fourth Fatimid Imam-caliph al-Mu‘izz li-din Allah (r. 953-975 CE), based on the only complete history of the Fatimids written by a mediaeval Sunni Muslim historian. The work by Dr Shainool Jiwa, provides a translation for the first time, of the writings of al-Maqrizi, a 15th century Mamluk scholar, on the reign of Imam-caliph al-Mu‘izz.
Imam-Caliph al-Mu‘izz’s rule was among the most eventful periods in Fatimid history and has left indelible imprints on subsequent centuries.
