(p.22) 1 Qasr Ibrim’s Land Sales
Medieval Nubia

Giovanni R. Ruffini

Oxford University Press

This chapter summarizes the published and unpublished land sales from medieval Nubia written in the Old Nubian language. It gives a commentary on the legal transactions taking place in the published twelfth-century texts from Gerald Browne’s Old Nubian Texts from Qasr Ibrim III. It also gives a summary of similar transactions found in unpublished texts from the thirteenth to fifteenth centuries AD. It then provides an analysis of the different types of land sales from Qasr Ibrim: Type 1, a direct sale of property from one person to another; Type 2, a sale between two parties in which a third party makes payment; and Type 3, a sale of one person’s land to another by a third party.

Keywords:   Old Nubian archives, land sale types, land sale structure
