Josephine van den Bent investigates, analyses and contextualises the representation of the Mongols in Mamluk Syria, c. AH 656-761/1260-1360 AD. There was a basic image of the Mongols as ‘violent infidels’, but a closer study shows that representations of the Mongols were more elaborate and intricate than that. The formation of images and stereotypes of the Mongols in the Mamluk sultanate took place in complicated and diverse cultural and political contexts, and was therefore far from straightforward and unanimous.
