The Administration of Justice in Medieval Egypt

Edinburgh University Press

The chapter examines the history of the cadi institution in Egypt between 868 and 969. During that period, the cadis came to the forefront of political life under the Tulunids (868-905) and the Ikhshidids (935-969). The chapter also follows the spread of the cadi institution to Egypt’s provincial towns and the cadis’ involvement in the application of the law.
