942–956: Ibn Ḥayyān on Hungarian Raids and the Battle of Lechfeld

2022, König, Daniel G.

In a hitherto little-noticed source passage, the Andalusian historiographer Ibn Ḥayyān reports in detail on the Hungarian invasions in al-Andalus. In this context, he briefly mentions a Frankish victory, which put an end to their raiding activities. Since the Hungarians were only defeated twice by Frankish troops, namely in the Battle of Riade (933) and in the Battle of Lechfeld (955), it seems that he referred to the latter. Against this backdrop, the article discusses how Ibn Ḥayyān's knowledge about this significant event relating to the history of Central Europe can be placed into the broader framework of tenth-century Ottonian–Umayyad relations.

1250: Jean de Joinville Listens to the Story of a Renegade in Egypt

2022, König, Daniel G.

Using the example of an anecdote from Jean de Joinville's Histoire de Saint Louis, the article deals with Christians who embraced Islam in the context of the crusades. It provides a contemporary and modern definition of the term "renegade" and shows that Christians in the crusader milieu converted to Islam under very different circumstances. With regard to conversions, this milieu exhibited certain characteristics that were not present in the same way in other regions of intensive Christian–Muslim interaction between the eleventh and the fifteenth centuries.
