“Those Damned Infidels” – The Frankish Raid on Alexandria in 1365 as a Turning Point. The Interdependence of Trade, Religion and Politics.

This project examines how the Frankish raid on Alexandria in 1365 shook the relationship between “East” and “West” or Cyprus and the Mamluk Empire and influenced medieval Mamluk society. It analyses the raid in the sense of a fragile coalition under Cypriote rule against an instable Mamluk Empire with a heterogeneous population as well as the interdependence of trade, religion and politics. On the basis of European and Arabic sources, the aim is to understand the web of relationships between the various groups based in the Mamluk Empire and their relationship with the Mamluk authorities and their mutual perception.
