TEMA: La shari‘a o ley sagrada de los musulmanes

Shari‘a y jurisprudencia cuando el islam está en minoría:la experiencia de los mudéjares

Echevarria, Ana

ABSTRACT

One of the most specific traits of the protected status enjoyed by the Muslim population in the Christian kingdoms (Mudejars) was the possibility of maintaining their own law. This article studies the practical implications of that status: the production of manuscripts of legal content and jurisprudence in Arabic as well as in Romance and Aljamiado, as a sign of the preservation of Islamic law and its continued use; the possibility of having Islamic jurisconsults in Christian courts; and the maintenance of a judicial hierarchy that does not differ in its requirements and attributions from that of previous Islamic periods. Likewise, the evolution of the shari’a and other types of regulations emanating from the political power affected the Mudejars as well as the emirate of Granada.
