The Cleveringa Lecture Now Available Online

On 27 November our institute, with the generous support of the Netherlands Embassy in Cairo, organised a seminar/conference. It was organised in cooperation with professor Dr Petra Sijpesteijn of Leiden University. The topic of the seminar was " Informal requests for help and mediation (on paper and/or papyrus) in Egypt (from Roman times until the Ottoman era) ". The aim of the presentations was to investigate how informal requests have contributed to social cohesion of the early Islamic society. In total eight papers on this topic were read and discussed in a serious, but convivial atmosphere.
