D'Europe et d'Orient, les approches de l'esclavage des Chrétiens en terres d'Islam

Abstract : The slavery in Islamic lands has given rise to new readings in three recent books, from the reconsideration of white slaves’ trade in North Africa to the revaluation of a model of servitude in the first caliphs’ words and gestures. From this point of view, these studies can be distinguished from other historical approaches that have conceived Christians’ enslavement in the wider frame of Mediterranean interactions or behind different uses of Mamluks in Arabic societies. Above all, the confrontation of these various works on slavery rise the issue of an Islamic specificity on that matter: to what extent slavery can be explained in an Islamic frame? According to what sources and by which method can we compare slave trades?
