Mu’ayyad Šayḫ and the Landscape of Power

Two magnificent monuments adorn al-Darb al-Aḥmar Street today, both built by al-Sulṭān al-Mu’ayyad Šayḫ. But their present monumentality is just a portion of their original physical entity, when they were founded. The article discusses the original borders of the two structures by information recruited from waqfiyya of al-Mu’ayyad Šayḫ and demonstrates how these two edifices were used by the architects of al Mu’ayyad to control over fifteenth century al-Qāhira’s beating heart, al-Darb al-Aḥmar Street.

Keywords: al-Sulṭān al-Mu’ayyad Šayḫ – mosque of al-Mu’ayyad Šayḫ – bīmāristān al- Mu’ayyad Šayḫ – ḥammām al-Mu’ayyad – waqfiyyat al-Mu’ayyad – al-Darb al-Aḥmar street – Bāb Zuwayla – fifteenth century al-Qāhira.
