Abstract

Ḥaram al-Sharīf document no. 302 contains an Arabic marriage contract and subsequent divorce agreement. What makes this document especially significant is that it records a marriage between a Muslim groom and a Christian bride and then records their divorce. (It was not the first time this couple had married and divorced each other.) Marriage and divorce documents between Muslims and Christians seem to be rare. Therefore, these two contracts are very important to developing our knowledge of the nature of the relationship between Muslims and Christians in Jerusalem during the Mamluk era, on the one hand, and society’s attitude toward such relationships on the other.
