The decline of the Fatimis

Filed under: CIV 211, Spring 2007 — Hamman @ 11:11 am

We continued the history of the Fatimis, and their eventual decline. We also looked at the presence of 3 khalifahs at the same time at this point in Islamic history, and its implications. Some of the dynasties and rulers covered were…

  • Mustansir and Mahmud
  • Nasr
  • Sebuktegin
  • The Buyis
  • The Seljuks
  • Nizam al-Mulk

We concluded with a look at the hope of a united Umma that arose during the administration of Nizam as wazir, and how a khalifah, Nasir, tried to add a political dimension to his religious functions.
