Extracts from the Translation

This section of the website offers links to translations of key passages in the introductory chapters of the 'History of the Fayyum', as well as entries for 7 sample villages (out of 130 in the tax register).  The Arabic text for each of these passages is also accessible. 

All in all, the passages translated here represent about 5% of the treatise as a whole. To learn more about the scope and organization of the treatise, see the Tax Register section.

With time, we aim to add here more passages and village entries.  If you are interested in the translation of a particular passage from the tax register, or in an individual Fayyumi village, please contact the Project team.
