This book has its origin in a conference held in Paris in 2008 dealing with the Arab allies of the Byzantine Empire in the sixth century AD, and more specifically the Jafnid dynasty. Two of its outstanding figures, al-Ḥārith b. Jabala and his son al-Mundhir, were granted the highest honours of the Empire and their power far exceeded that of mere tribal chiefs. Because of divergences in interpreting the nature and role of the dynasty, it seemed necessary to make a fresh assessment of the state of our knowledge and of the different kinds of sources at our disposal. The eleven contributions in this volume tackle the question of the Jafnid dynasty from different angles making direct use of the sources, which are critically presented. They will certainly become essential references for further research about the Arab allies of the Byzantine Empire.
