Symbols of Authority in Medieval Islam

History, Religion and Muslim Legitimacy in the Delhi Sultanate

Blain H Auer

From the victory of the Ghūrid ruler Mu’izz al-Din Muhammad b. Sam in around 569/1173 up to Amīr Tīmūr’s invasion and ransacking of the city in 801/1398, Delhi was a centre of Islamic authority. ‘Attempting to navigate the waters’ of Muslim historiography in the subcontinent, Blain Auer explores the origins and describes the expansion of the Delhi Sultanate over those two centuries.
