Volume 21, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1022-6486


In this article the question is raised whether a medieval Nubian feudalism existed. The sources as well as the divergent theories or viewpoints of modem scholars on this controversy are critically examined. The definition of feudalism in its different senses is discussed in order to try to "place" a possible Nubian feudalism, and parallelism with Byzantium is examined. The author comes to the conclusion that there is no real evidence for the acceptance of the existence of a Nubian feudalism.
