Le savant et son époque à travers sa correspondance

Seeger A. Bonebakker (1923-2005) et quelques notes sur Ḫalīl b. Aybak al-Ṣafadī (696-764/1297-1363)

Elise Franssen    Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Italia    



This article proposes a survey of two great scholars’ in Arabic literature correspondances: a European of the 20th century, Seeger Adrianus Bonebakker, who is of special interest for us because he bequeathed all of his great library, personal notes and correspondance to the Università Ca’ Foscari, and a subject of study of the former, Ḫalīl b. Aybak al-Ṣafadī, great littérateur and scholar of the first century of the Mamluk period. Letters sent and received are preserved in both cases and are primary sources on their network, but also on their personal life, personnality and methodology.

Keywords: Correspondence. Scholars’ network. Literature analysis. Orientalism. Mamluk period. Intellectual History.
