My project focuses the domination of Fatimid Caliphal dynastythat isthe period of the second Islamic domination over Sicily. The Fatimidsdelegated the government of the island to the Kalbid family thatledan emirate from 948 to 1053. In particular, the aim of this project is to investigate the relations between the ruling class pertaining to the Ismāʿīlī juridical school (maḏhab) and the majority of the Sicilian population that instead belonged to the Mālikī school. In this sense, the research involves both the historical-religious and the legal-political spheres.
